Among others the rumours relate to loan defaults to PEL/Piramal Capital & Housing Finance Limited (PCHFL) by real estate developers such as Lodha, Omkar, Vatika, Embassy, Radius, Nahar, Aristo, Supertech, etc.

Piramal Enterprises categorically stated that it has an extremely robust loan processing and recovery process including risk management and asset monitoring system. Developers like Lodha. Omkar. Vatika and Embassy referred to in the rumours are part of its lending portfolio but have never defaulted on any interest or repayment obligation to PEL/PCHFL. Additionally, contrary to rumours, PCHFL has not extended any loan to developers like Aristo. Nahar, Supertech, Radius and Amrapali; so is no question of any default on loan repayments by these developers. National Housing Board (NHB) has now initiated their annual inspection of PCHFL. This is purely routine and procedural in nature.
