IL&FS scam: IFIN fraudulently lent to group firms to avoid declaring NPAs

The Serious Fraud Investigation Office (SFIO), in its probe into IL&FS Financial Services (IFIN), has found that the company fraudulently sanctioned loans to IL&FS group entities to avoid declaring stressed assets, sources told FE.
