City-based Shristi Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd faces an arbitration claim of Rs 160 crore from Rishima SA Investments LLC, an investor of a 5-star hotel project in the city.

Mauritius-registered Rishima had invested Rs 80 crore in the Shristi promoted hotel project in Rajarhat, with 35 per cent stake.

But, differences between them led to a legal fight and Rishima approached for an arbitration.

"An international arbitration had awarded an order but we will contest this at an appropriate higher forum," Shriti managing director Sunil Jha told PTI.

Shristi posted a consolidated revenue of Rs 307.25 crore from operations for the year ended March 2019 and posted a loss of Rs 20.5 crore.
