New Delhi: In what could further tighten Vijay Mallya's position, Diageo has submitted the settlement agreement to debt recovery tribunal (DRT).
DRT in early March barred Mallya from accessing the $75 million (Rs 515 crore) exit payment from Diageo till the loan default case with State Bank of India is settled.
The DRT, allowing an SBI plea, restrained Diageo from disbursing the money.
The SBI had sought DRT’s intervention in seeking the lenders’ first right on the $75-million payout from Diageo to Mallya as part of deal in February.
