"Public-sector banks have policies for one-time settlements. Hundreds of borrowers have settled. Why should this be denied to us?," the businessman said.
"Our substantial offer before the Hon'ble Supreme Court was rejected by the banks without consideration," Mr Mallya charged.
I have humbly obeyed every single Court Order without exception. Seems as if Government is bent upon holding me guilty without fair trial- Vijay Mallya (@TheVijayMallya) March 9, 2017
He further requested the Supreme Court to intervene and direct the banks to negotiate and settle.
"We are ready," he said.
Yesterday, Attorney General Mukul Rohatgi charged that Mr Mallya had failed to disclose the $40 million deal with London-based company Diageo to the Supreme Court.

"He took the Supreme Court for a ride, cares two hoots for the courts," Mr Rohatgi said.
Following this, the Supreme Court asked the liquor baron about the "truthfulness" of his disclosure of assets and transfer of the $40 million to his children.
Mr Mallya, a former Rajya Sabha lawmaker, left India for the United Kingdom on March 2 and has stayed there ever since.
