April 17 (Reuters) - Vedanta Ltd, the Indian unit of diversified mining group Vedanta Resources Plc, said on Tuesday the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) has approved its Resolution Plan to acquire the debt-ridden Electrosteel Steels Ltd.
The takeover process for Electrosteel was overseen by India’s NCLT, which deals with insolvency and company disputes.
A wholly-owned unit of Vedanta Ltd will subscribe Electrosteel's share capital for 18.05 billion rupees ($274.96 million) and provide additional funds worth 35.15 billion rupees by way of debt, the company said in a statement bit.ly/2J0AW6S.
Vedanta Ltd had won an auction to acquire the Electrosteel Steels last month. Tata Steel, privately-held Renaissance Steel and Edelweiss Alternative Asset Advisors Pte Ltd were the suitors for Electrosteel Steels.
