IDBI Bank, the biggest lender to the debt-laden realty firm, had opposed NBCC's bid saying it was conditional. It said NBCC's offer for the company was conditional upon grant of approval to transfer Yamuna Expressway's business to NBCC.

Homebuyers and lenders of Jaypee Infratech on Thursday started voting on NBCC's bid to acquire Jaypee group's realty firm and complete the construction of over 20,000 flats.

The voting process was to end on Sunday and the outcome declared on 20 May.

The bench also allowed CoC to renegotiate with the sole bidder, NBCC India, on its offer.

Justice Mukhopadhaya said the CoC (committee of creditors) may approve the plan if it is in accordance with the law, but in case of rejection, they cannot pass it until the NCLAT approves the rejection of the bid.

The NCLAT also allowed nine homebuyers' associations representing around 5,000 buyers to file intervention application.
