Former Jet Airways Chairman Naresh Goyal Likely to Submit Bids for Stake in Airline

Mumbai: Former Jet Airways chairman Naresh Goyal is likely to submit initial bids for stake in the airline, sources said.
SBI Caps, which invited Expression of Interest (EoI) for stake sale in Jet Airways on April 8, has already extended the date for submission of bids to April 12 from April 10 earlier.
SBI Caps has the mandate for Jet Airways' sale on behalf of the SBI-led consortium of domestic lenders to the debt-ridden private carrier.
It has put between 31 per cent and up to 75 per cent in the airline for investors.
The bidding norms allow Goyal to participate in the sale process. Goyal's response on the issue was awaited.
SBI chairman Rajnish Kumar last month said, "It could be financial investor, it could be airline... including Naresh Goyal himself or Etihad. Nobody is barred from bidding or taking over the airline as per the rule."
