Mumbai, February 11, 2022: Dalmia Nisus Finance Investment Managers LLP (“Dalmia Nisus”), an alternatives manager has recently exited their entire investment amount of Rs 50 Cr in a project belonging to a wholly owned subsidiary of Puravankara Limited, through their Real Estate Credit Opportunities Fund – I (RECOF – I).

The Fund had invested in October 2020 and the exit comes at a time when many large NBFC’s and Banks are finding it difficult to exit from their loans to the real estate sector.
