Crisis-hit NSEL has invited bids to sell off 14,200 tonnes of Ferrochrome stock belonging to a defaulter Metkore Alloys and Industries in order to recover the balance amount of Rs 95.08 crore.

Metkore Alloys, one among 24 members who defaulted on pay-in obligation of Rs 5,600 crore after Jignesh Shah-led National Spot Exchange Ltd shut down due to violation of government norms, owes Rs 114.28 crore.

"Bids in sealed cover are invited by NSEL for sale of 14,200 tonnes of Ferrochrome at NSEL warehouse in Andhra Pradesh," the NSEL said on its website.

Since Metkore Alloys became a defaulter in fund pay-in, NSEL has initiated process of liquidation of the Ferrochrome stock to recover money and pay to the investors, it said.

Besides, the NSEL has also invited application to auction the assets of two defaulters -- Mohan India and Vimladevi Agrotech Ltd.

Mohan India owes Rs 600.08 crore, of which it has paid 52.85 crore to the exchange, while Vimladevi Agrotech has paid only 0.08 crore out of Rs 14.02 crore dues so far, the NSEL data said.
