Ashneer files plea in NCLT, seeks exemptions in petition against BharatPe

BharatPe co-founder and former managing director Ashneer Grover has filed a plea before NCLT seeking waiver over a petition earlier filed by him alleging oppressive conduct and mismanagement by the board of the fintech firm. On this, the Delhi bench of National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) on Monday issued a notice, seeking reply from BharatPe and other respondents and listed the matter for the next hearing in April. Last December, Grover had filed a plea before NCLT alleging oppressive conduct and mismanagement by the board of Resilient Innovations Pvt Ltd, which is doing business as BharatPe, under sections 241 and 242 of the Companies Act 2013. However, section 244 of the Act also mandates that the shareholder, to file an appeal under section 241, should have a minimum of 10 per cent of the shares of the company. It also empowers NCLT "may, on an application made to it in this behalf, waive all or any of the requirements specified" so as to enable a petitioner to apply under sect

BharatPe fraud: Ashneer Grover, wife move HC challenging lookout circular

Payment app BharatPe's former MD Ashneer Grover and his wife on Thursday approached the Delhi High Court seeking quashing of the Look Out Circular (LOC) issued against them in connection with the investigation in a cheating and forgery case. Justice Subramonium Prasad, before whom the matter came up for hearing, listed it for May 8 saying the investigation in the case registered by the Delhi Police's Economic Offences Wing (EOW) is at a nascent stage. It is too hot in the day for this court to intervene now. Come after sometime. The investigation is at a nascent stage and they will take some time to investigate, the high court said. It further said that at this juncture, it will not be correct to say that the LOC is completely unjustified. As an interim relief, Grover and his wife Madhuri Jain Grover have sought suspension of the LOC issued against them with a further direction to the authorities not to interfere with or prevent their right to travel abroad.

HC imposes Rs 2 lakh as costs on Ashneer Grover over posts on BharatPe

The Delhi High Court on Tuesday imposed Rs 2 lakh as costs on BharatPe co-founder Ashneer Grover in the matter related to his alleged defamatory social media posts against the fintech company. Justice Rekha Palli took on record the apology and the undertaking given by Grover but proceeded to impose costs on him, saying the "court cannot be taken for granted". The judge, while dealing with a plea by Resilient Innovations Pvt Ltd - which owns BharatPe - against its former MD, said the court was "appalled" to note the "persistent" and "blatant" violation of the earlier orders and assurances given by Grover in this regard. "Taking into account that defendant no 2 is now filing an affidavit specifically undertaking not to post any such defamatory posts in future and is also apologising for his past behaviour, this court is inclined to close the matter at this stage by binding the defendant no 2 to his undertaking. This is, however, subject to a payment of costs of Rs 2 lakh," the court
