Total Claims by DHFL Creditors
- The total loan of SBI to the DHFL amounts to Rs. 7,267, highest among the other 2 Public Sector Undertaking (PSUs) Banks.
- Next to SBI, the biggest PSU creditor for DHFL is Rs. 4,125 Cr. and Union Bank of India is Rs. 3,605 Cr.
- All of these dues amounts of these banks have already been provisioned and hence the recovery of this amount will strengthen the bottom line i.e., the profitability of these banks.
Recovery Analysis- Cash Recovery
- The total claims against DHFL amount to Rs. 87,000 Cr. out of which around Piramal Capital and Housing Finance will be paying out creditor of Rs. 37,400 Cr. which equals around 43% of the total claim of the DHFL.
- This recovery will be done in 2 parts:
- The first one is the Cash Component which will be 20% of the total claim i.e., around Rs. 17,400 Cr.
- While the second and the last mode is Non-Convertible Debentures (NCDs)- 23% of the claim or Rs. 20,010 Cr. in value terms.
- Moving ahead if we dive into the matter, we come to know that these creditors are not going to receive their total due amount towards DHFL but only up to 20% of the cash deal.
