In a filing to the stock exchanges, the airline said it is not in a position to consider and approve the audited financial results for the year ended 31 March, 2019.

The airline cited "ongoing bidding process undertaken by the domestic lenders for change in management of the company, coupled with resignation by members of the board of directors, its key managerial personnel and other employees across functions," as reasons for not considering the results.

Earlier this month, Jet Airways Chief Executive Officer Vinay Dube and his deputy Amit Agarwal put in their papers.

The consortium of lenders -- led by SBI -- is struggling to find a buyer for the airline.

Shares of the airline rose 1.51 percent to close at Rs 150.85 on the BSE.
