Jaypee Infratech: SC asks company associates to deposit Rs 2000 Crore”

The Supreme Court on Monday asked debt-ridden realty firm Jaypee Associates to deposit Rs 2,000 crore with the court's registry by October 27.

A bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Justice A.M. Khanwilkar and Justice D.Y. Chandrachud directed that the amount should be deposited by October 27.
