The NCLT's order goes against US online retailer Amazon, a shareholder in Future Coupons. Amazon had alleged that the Bank of India’s petition to initiate insolvency proceedings against the Indian retailer was "malicious."

It had also alleged that lenders to Future Retail, including Bank of India, were colluding with Future Retail by initiating the sale of the distressed company’s assets to Reliance Retail.
