Kishore Biyani has stepped down as the chairman of the suspended board of the debt-ridden Future Retail, which is currently facing insolvency proceedings.

His resignation “shall be placed before the Committee of Creditors, according to the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016”, the company added.

The resolution professional of Future Retail Ltd (FRL) received the intimation through an e-mail on Tuesday.

“Nothing herein should be construed as an acceptance of the contents of the resignation letter tendered by Kishore Biyani, including in respect of his submissions in the resignation letter on information handover,” it added.

FRL was dragged into insolvency proceedings by its lender Bank of India after it defaulted on loans.

Its lenders rejected a Rs 24,713-crore takeover of the 19 Future group companies, including FRL, by Reliance amid a legal challenge by Amazon.
