On May 15, the Mumbai Bench of the NCLT
had admitted an insolvency petition filed by Ericsson against Reliance Communications
and two of its subsidiaries seeking to recover unpaid dues.
Ericsson, which had signed a seven-year deal in 2014 to operate and manage RCom's nationwide telecom network, had alleged that it had not been paid the dues.
Last September, the Swedish company had filed a petition in the NCLT's Mumbai Bench seeking liquidation of the telecom operator to recover Rs 11.5 billion (Rs 1,150 crore) that RCom allegedly owes it.
The asset sale process, however, hit a hurdle when an arbitration court, in an interim order, barred the sale plans without its permission, on an appeal by telecom gear maker Ericsson India.
