It has directed to list the matter on 21 August, for next hearing.

Earlier, National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) Mumbai, had rejected Dutch insolvency administrator's appeal to recognise their proceedings.

Jet Airways is facing Insolvency proceedings in the Netherlands and was declared bankrupt in response to a complaint filed by two European creditors.

In April, H Esser Finance Company and Wallenborn Transport had filed a petition citing unpaid claims worth around Rs 280 crore.

Following this, a trustee in charge was appointed by the Dutch court and it had approached its Indian counterpart for access to the financials as well as assets of the airline.

One of the Jet Airways aircraft, parked in the Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, has already been seized.

Jet Airways, which has not flown since 18 April, is going through insolvency proceedings in India as well.

A consortium of 26 bankers led by State Bank of India had approached the NCLT to recover dues of over Rs 8,500 crore from Jet Airways.

Apart from banks, it also owes over Rs 10,000 crore to its hundreds of vendors, primarily aircraft lessors and over Rs 3,000 crore to its employees.
