Cumulatively for the period upto June 30, 2020, it amounts to Rs 69 crore.

    The disclosures to BSE also stated that a material uncertainty exists that may cast significant doubts on the company's ability to continue as a going concern.

    "The appropriateness of assumption of going concern is dependent upon getting favourable judgement/orders in respect of disputes with Airports Authority of India and continuing the Mumbai hotel operations," the auditors stated.

    The chain also stated the impact of Covid 19 may not be a major challenge in continuing the business.

    In March last year, Hotel Leelaventure announced plans to sell its hotels in Delhi, Bengaluru, Udaipur and Chennai to Brookfield Asset Management for Rs 3,950 crore.

    In a regulatory filing in January this year, the chain said the company has been changed to HLV Limited.
