Ambani further said RInfra has around Rs 60,000 crore of receivables stuck in regulatory and arbitration matters which are pending for 5-10 years.

He also said the company has assets of over Rs 65,000 crore and a net worth of over Rs 11,000 crore.

Providing an update on the effect of COVID-19, Ambani said, "the engineering and construction projects are fully operational with 5,000 people working on sites. All the road toll collection is already at 75 percent of the pre-COVID-19 period and will achieve 100 percent in the next few weeks."
