For home buyers, it has also decided to reduce the deadline for the completion of over 20,000 flats to three-and-a-half years from four years.
NBCC has also decided to withdraw its earlier offer of 50 percent share in profit on the sale of unclaimed flats and 75 percent of 858-acre land parcels, which has been pledged by the promoter JAL and is currently under litigation.
For lenders, NBCC has proposed to increase the concession agreement by 10 years on Yamuna Expressway, which it has proposed to transfer it to bankers. However, NBCC has proposed to take Rs 2,500 crore debt against toll income of the expressway, which connects Noida and Agra, for completion of pending flats.
Suraksha Realty has also sweetened its resolution plan, by offering 2,220 acres of land worth Rs 9,800 crore under the land-debt swap deal. Earlier, it had offered 1,934 acres of land worth Rs 7,857 crore. This will cover the entire claim of lenders which is Rs 9,800 crore.

It has also proposed to provide additional land parcels worth Rs 250 crore to homebuyers if 858 acre land under the litigation is returned to Jaypee Infratech.
The final bids would be discussed at the next CoC meeting slated for December 7.
There may also be internal voting by homebuyers from 1400 hours on December 4 until 1350 hours of December 6 to decide who would be the H1 bidder and whether both the plans would be put to vote, sources said.
Last week, the Committee of Jaypee Creditors met NBBC and Suraksha representatives for several hours to discuss their proposals and asked them to revise their bids. They wanted NBCC to provide more land with clear title in lieu of its current offer of over 600 acres land that is under litigation and some unclaimed flats. Also, they wanted a complete Yammu Expressway Project without any debt obligation.
The homebuyers’ representative Kuldeep Verma demanded that delay compensation should be paid to homebuyers as promised by Jaypee Infratech. The compensation for future delays should be as per RERA, sources said.
