DLF Ltd deposits Rs. 525 cr of CCI Penalty with Supreme Court..!

DLF Ltd on recently said it had deposited Rs. 525 crore with Supreme Court against the Rs. 630 crore fine slapped on it by the fair trade regulator, Competition Commission of India (CCI).
In an analyst presentation, the company said it would deposit the remaining amount by July, 2015

In August 2011, the regulator had found DLF Ltd violating fair trade norms and imposed a fine of Rs. 630 crore following a complaint by a Belaire Owners’ Association in Gurgaon.

The fine amounted to about 7.5%of the firm’s FY14 revenue of Rs. 8,298 crore.

The apex court had in August, 2014 year directed the company to deposit the fine within 3 months, pending an appeal filed by it against Competition Appellate Tribunal’s order upholding the penalty.

The court later allowed the company to deposit part of the fine in monthly installments.

In another case of unfair and abusive business practices, CCI last week found DLF violating fair trade norms, but did not slap any fine. This case was lodged against its housing project, New Town Heights, in Gurgaon.

According to the analyst presentation, DLF’s net debt stood at Rs 20,965 crore as on March 31, up by Rs. 628 crore from Rs. 20,336 crore at the end of the December quarter. Of the total debt, DLF said about Rs. 14,000 crore pertains to rental business, and the rest towards development arm.
