India Law Services (ILS) has acted as lenders' legal counsel on three external commercial borrowings (ECB) and loan structurings of Reliance Power worth around $50m of for the second phase development of its Uttar Pradesh-based 1,200 MW Rosa Power project.

ILS advised Axis Bank, Allahabad Bank and Syndicate Bank on the execution of three different loan agreements as well as conversion of existing Rupee term loans into foreign currency loans to enable Rosa Power Supply to reach full-capacity power generation.

ILS Mumbai-based partner Tushar Desai led the transaction for the lender consortium while the borrower Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group (ADAG)-owned Reliance Power acted through its in-house legal team.

Desai told Legally India: “The Axis Bank Ltd and Allahabad Bank granted such foreign currency loans through their respective Hong Kong branches, Syndicate Bank did so from its London branch.

“While the first transaction of Axis Bank Ltd.,(for $20m), was signed in October 2010, the other two were with Allahabad Bank ($15m) and Syndicate Bank ($15m) were signed in January 2011. In this case individual facility agreements were executed with each of the ECB lenders and other finance documents were executed for inclusion of the ECB Lenders as part of the consortium.”

According to the Economic Times the Rosa plant recently hit 105 per cent of its power generation capacity last month.
