The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) is expected to move court for freezing the bank accounts and properties of some of the past directors of IL&FS group. The ministry would soon apply before the National Company Law Tribunal to widen the net in the IL&FS probe, said persons familiar with the matter. Till now, assets of executive directors of IL&FS group have been attached by the court. 
“Now, the MCA is likely to request the court to extend the earlier orders to cover past directors, probably including some of the non-executive board members... former auditors may also be included.” The ministry had taken a similar action against directors of Gitanjali Group, which was charged with diverting funds from state-owned banks using unauthorised letters of undertaking or guarantees.
