India’s central bank said on Monday it will initiate bankruptcy proceedings against Reliance Capital Ltd and superseded the non-banking financial company’s board on governance concerns.

The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) appointed https://bit.ly/31dTTSh Nageswar Rao Y, a former executive director at Bank of Maharashtra Ltd, as the administrator of Reliance Capital.

In June 2019 auditors raised several red flags around Reliance Capital’s fourth-quarter results, including a lack of clarity in accounting methodology.

The company has since then failed to make several debt obligation payments.
