  • DHFL has been the most severely impacted large financiers in the NBFC crisis

  • The world of finance has been hit by the NBFC crisis since September last when industry major IL&FS went belly-up

  • DHFL owes around Rs 1 lakh crore to the system, including over Rs 50,000 crore to banks, while the rest are from entities like mutual funds

Mumbai: Asset manager DSP Mutual Fund has recovered the entire dues of Rs 150 crore from the troubled mortgage lender DHFL. The third-largest pure-play mortgage lender had borrowed money from the fund house through the commercial paper route but paid only half of the dues in June.

DHFL has been the most severely impacted large financiers in the NBFC crisis, that has engulfed the world of finance since September last when industry major IL&FS went belly-up. It has defaulted on multiple commitments and has also been forced to sell off non-core assets as the promoters seek to repay loans.
