Debt on Future Group
Biyani’s Future Group, known as the retail king, is deeply in debt. Biyani made a deal with Reliance Industries in 2020 to sell his retail business. But America’s giant e-commerce company Amazon had raised objections to this. A legal battle has been going on between Future and Amazon since then. Recently, Reliance canceled the deal with Future as it was not approved by the bankers.

But before that Reliance had captured more than 900 Big Bazaar stores. This has resulted in a significant drop in futures cash flow. He doesn’t have enough goods or money to operate the rest of the stores, pay employees or vendors. Banks led by Bank of India have decided to drag Future Retail to the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) to recover their dues. This can add to the difficulties of the company.
