Reliance Communication Limited & Ors. vs. State Bank of India Ericsson India Pvt., Ltd. [Ericsson]
Brief Facts of the Case:
Reliance Communication Limited & Ors. vs. State Bank of India Ericsson India Pvt., Ltd. [Ericsson]. Reliance Communication entered into an agreement where Ericsson agreed to provide managed service to Reliance Communication for its network. Ericsson asked the Reliance Companies for the payment of the money in return for providing service but was not successful in getting the same and issued three notices to these companies. The undertaking was given before the companies and was decided to sell the assets for the payment of the amount.
Respondent contended that it was never said by the Supreme Court and NCLT that the amount
of Rs. 550 would be paid upon the condition of the sale of assets. The Supreme court held the petitioner to be liable for the contempt of court and hampered the administration of justice by submitting two different undertakings before NCLT and the Supreme Court of India. The court directed to make a payment of Rs 118 to Ericsson which was earlier paid to the Registry of the court within one week.
The court also directed Reliance Communication to pay Rs. 453 to Ericsson within four weeks to purge contempt of court. In default of the payment of the outstanding amount, the Chairman will suffer three months of imprisonment and has given an undertaking to the court.
