Sucessful payouts

and transaction closure

The successful payouts and transaction closure is one of the fastest in the history of NCLT post-Covid period. The acquisition of JBFPL offers GAIL an opportunity to add a new product Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) to GAIL's existing petrochemical portfolio. GAIL is looking forward to revive the business operations of JBFPL and is committed to turn it around as a thriving manufacturing entity.

A foray into emerging space

the fastest in the history of NCLT post-Covid period

GAIL's foray into this emerging space is expected to provide a decisive push to domestic manufacturing sectors of textiles and PET chips which are major consumers of PTA thereby reducing significant import dependencies. GAIL has already infused Total Resolution Plan Amount of Rs. 2,101 crores, thus acquiring 100% stakes in JBFPL with JBFPL becoming a Wholly Owned Subsidiary (WOS) of GAIL. The cost of acquisition is significantly lower than a greenfield project of similar magnitude. Further, all the erstwhile creditors, including Employees and Workmen of JBFPL have been paid their claims as per the order of Hon'ble NCLT.
