On Monday, Go First informed the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) it is settling its dispute with logistics company Delhivery. The Resolution Professional of the air carrier, which is currently going through the Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process (CIRP) told the NCLT, a settlement is being tried.

The NCLT had on June 8 issued notice to the Interim Resolution Professional (IRP) of Go First over the plea filed by the supply chain company.

With liabilities worth Rs 11,463 crore, Go First sought voluntary insolvency resolution proceedings as well as an interim moratorium on its financial obligations. The National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) on May 10 admitted the plea of Go First to initiate voluntary insolvency resolution proceedings.

The airline had filed a plea for voluntary insolvency resolution proceedings before the NCLT. It filed its petition under Section 10 of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code to initiate insolvency against itself. The plea is different from Sections 7 and 9 where the financial and operational creditors, respectively, take the corporate debtor to the NCLT in case of default in payment of dues.
