Maytas Infra Ltd today maintained that it has documentary evidence to show that Mahindra Satyam (Satyam Computer) was the ultimate beneficiary of Rs 324 crore, which was handed over as inter-corporate deposits (ICDs). This is part of Rs 392 crore ICDs, which the erstwhile promoters of Maytas Infra Ltd, passed on to other corporate entities, including Mahindra Satyam.
The board of directors of Maytas Infra, which met on Monday, mentioned that the company has made a claim of Rs 323.78 crore together with interest receivable from Mahindra Satyam, and that they were confident of recovering the ICDs together with interest.
