Earlier in the day, CNBC TV18 reported that Jet Airways was likely to finalise a resolution plan with its lenders this week and that Goyal would trim his 51 per cent stake to 20-25 per cent and agree to voting rights on his stake being capped at 10 per cent, in a bid to save the debt-laden carrier. The report also said Etihad may infuse capital into Jet and raise its stake from the 24 per cent it currently owns.

“The bankers met top executives of Jet Airways on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, to discuss the financial state of the airline and how loans of over Rs 8,000 crore could be recast, it is learnt that SBI could possibly consider converting its debt to equity in the Goyal-led company," the Business Standard report suggested.
