But the company did not name the new investor.
Announcing the resolution plan, company chairman Anil Ambani told reporters in Mumbai that the new plan has the support of a Chinese lender that had dragged it to the NCLT for dues running into USD 1.8 billion, and would see RCom bringing down its mountain of debt by Rs 25,000 crore.
Debt resolution involves RCom exiting SDR framework with no conversion of debt into equity and zero write-off by lenders, Ambani said, adding he expects full closure by March 2018.
The company has a debt of over Rs 44,000 crore.
