Rs 2500 Crore Banking Fraud in Zoom Developer Project, CBI Enquiry

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has begun preliminary examination of allegations of banking fraud in loans worth Rs 2,500 crore disbursed to Zoom Developers, a Mumbai-based project developer.

Confirming the approach made by CBI, two senior public sector bank executives said the agency had questioned banks on the borrower (company), which is already being treated as a non-performing account (NPA). There is also a question about the use of funds.

Punjab National Bank is lead banker to Zoom. In all, 27 Indian banks, most of these public sector ones, have lent Rs 2,500 crore to the company. Its loans were admitted for corporate debt restructuring in the fourth quarter of last year.

Bank guarantees given for Zoom have been invoked. Punjab National Bank is the lead banker, with about Rs 450 crore of exposure of which nearly Rs 300 crore has been considered as an NPA by the bank from the first quarter of this financial year.
