| Published on March 19, 2019

Finally, Anil Ambani can feel relieved as the 18-month long court battle between Ericsson and RCom has ended. Their partnership started in 2013 when both made an official deal that the Swedish company will manage RCom’s nationwide network. In 2017, Ericsson moved to the bankruptcy court allegedly claiming, dues of around Rs 1,500 crore.

The case moved from NCLT to NCLAT, where a settlement was made for Rs 550 crore to be paid by September 30. RCom failed to meet up with this deadline, which forced Ericsson to go to Supreme Court. SC gave another deadline, December 15. RCom missed this one too.
