In Re: Mohan Exports India Ltd. vs. Tarun Overseas Pvt. Ltd.

In case the proposed scheme is bona fide and genuine and is not against public interest then mere fact that certain immovable properties or right to recover debts etc. are transferred to the transferee company would not mean that they are in violation of any provisions of the Transfer of Property Act. However, if such scheme is only with the ulterior motive to transfer the immovable properties without payment of Government or statutory dues, then the same would be against the public interest and the Court will not approve the scheme.

Miheer H. Mafatlal Vs. Mafatlal Industries Ltd.

The scope of Company Court to sanction scheme of amalgamation is limited and therefore Court can intervene in matter only when it is not just and fair or prejudicial to the interest of share holders. Court can only go through scheme and examine whether it has complied requirements under Section 391 (2) and was passed requisite majority or not. Individual personal interest of minority share holders is of no concern unless it is affecting class interest of such equity shareholders.
