ICICI Bank Limited v. Unimers India Limited and Ors. - (High Court of Bombay) (07 Mar 2016)

DRT has no jurisdiction to hear un-appointed debenture trustee



In a claim for recovery made by a debenture trustee of debentures of a company on behalf of or for the benefit of the debenture holders, the Debt Recovery Tribunal will have no jurisdiction to entertain an application for recovery. The Court distinguished the standing of a debenture trustee with that of a “secured creditor”: not falling within such a definition, a debenture trustee not appointed by a bank or financial institution would instead have legal recourse to civil courts.
