SC refuses to entertain plea of Kingfisher Airlines
Sep 02 2014 , New Delhi
"Your grievance has been, that Grievance Redressal Committee (GRC) should not decide the matter but they had already decided it, therefore your plea is infructuous" a bench comprising justices A R Dave and U U Lalit said.
The Kingfisher Airlines had alleged that the order by GRC was passed yesterday, ignoring the plea that the director should be allowed to be represented through lawyers.
However, after the bench said that the plea has become infructuous, the airline counsel submitted that they would challenge the GRC order before the concerned High Court.
State-run United Bank of India yesterday became the first lender to declare debt-ridden Kingfisher Airlines and its promoter Vijay Mallya as wilful defaulters.
