Supertech goes into insolvency, leaves 25,000 homebuyers' fate in limbo

Homebuyers should not panic but immediately file their claim with IRP as required under the law, says PSP Legal, which had filed several petitions against Supertech

Delhi-NCR-based developer Supertech, which has several ongoing projects in Noida, Greater Noida, Gurugram and Ghaziabad, went into insolvency on March 25  after the Delhi bench of the National Company Law Tribunal admitted a petition filed by the Union Bank of India for non-payment of dues of Rs 431,92,53,302 as on 31.01.2021.


This order may impact over 25,000 homebuyers who were awaiting possession of their homes booked with the developer for several years. However, Supertech claimed that the company has 38,041 customers out of which 27,111 homes have been delivered.


The NCLT appointed Hitesh Goel as the insolvency resolution professional (IRP) for Supertech under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC). The tribunal had reserved its order in the case on March 17, 2022 after the one time settlement proposed by Supertech was rejected by the bank and arguments were heard.

Reacting to the order, Supertech said that it will be approaching NCLAT in appeal against the order.

“In the matter of appointment of IRP in one of the Supertech Group Companies, by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), management of the Company stated that the Company will be approaching NCLAT in appeal against the order as the matter belongs to a financial creditor. In the interest of homebuyers, preference was given to construction and delivery of projects over repayment of bank dues which can be fulfilled after project completion. As all the projects of the Company are financially viable, there is no chance of loss to any party or financial creditor. The order will not affect operations of any other Supertech Group Company,” it said in a statement.
