The Hon’ble Bombay High Court has dismissed the winding up petition against Ruchi Soya Industries Ltd. filed by IDFC Bank Ltd.

“Powers of the Company Court under Section 539 of the Companies Act, 1956 are discretionary and have to be exercised cautiously and judiciously. In the facts of this case, I am satisfied that the respondent-company which has a temporary setback and is making a sincere attempt of its revival with the assistance of large number of the creditors, it would not be desirable and in the interest of all the creditors including the petitioner to pass any order of winding up against the respondent-company at this stage.”
