“In respect of Sugar Mills financed under consortium or multiple banking arrangements, the lenders may take pro-rata share as per the consortium arrangement. The leader of the consortium may assess the amount of eligible loan and may allocate the same to individual members.  In cases where the leader or some member is not willing to take its share, the same may be reallocated to other willing members.   In such cases it will be mandatory for lenders to cede appropriate charge on current / Fixed Assets of the company, as the case may be, to the lenders providing the soft loan.”
