Suraksha Realty has also kept aside Rs 250 crore worth of land for paying penalty to homebuyers for past delays.
In Jaypee Infratech, NBCC has offered to infuse Rs 120 crore, while Suraksha Rs 25 crore as equity.Jaypee Infratech, a subsidiary of crisis-hit Jaiprakash Associates, went into insolvency process in August 2017 after the National Company Law Tribunal admitted an application by an IDBI Bank-led consortium.
