The last date for submission of expression of interest (EoI) was 10 August.

Of the three entities that submitted EoIs, two are financial players and another is Panama-based fund Avantulo Group, PTI had reported on Saturday.

Etihad Airways, which holds 24 percent stake in Jet Airways, did not submit the bid.

The three EoIs will be reviewed by the resolution professional (RP) Ashish Chhawchharia to ascertain their eligibility.

Late last month, the RP had floated EoIs for selling stake in the airline that stopped flying mid-April.
