"Indian and global banks, as well as operational creditors including the government, mobile phone companies and telecom tower firms, have started submitting demands for dues to RBSA Advisors LLP, the interim resolution professional (IRP) appointed to oversee the insolvency process of the Anil Ambani-owned telco," The Economic Times quoted people familiar with the matter.

According to the report, May 21 is said to be the last date to send the claims. The spokesperson said that the lenders are asking for dues worth Rs 75,000 to Rs 9000 crore. There might be a possibility that it will go beyond that.

"Besides the national banks, Chinese lenders and bondholders will demand their dues along with interests. This is one of the largest claim amount seen in an insolvency case." ET quoted a source.
