  4. If the jurisdiction of NCLT is falling in Bombay bench then is it possible that the jurisdiction be changed to the Principle Bench Delhi i,e. is there any provision. The parties in my case are Bombay based and even foreign investors and we are the only investor based in Delhi, the agreement is in Bombay. Can the jurisdiction be of Delhi?


  5. Registered office of the company is at Haryana. We supplied goods at the Factory premises situate at Uttar Pradesh. For the purposes of resolution of payment at NCLT we have to approach Chandigarh NCLT or Allahabad NCLT
