BENGALURU (Reuters) - A unit of State Bank of India, which is overseeing the bidding process for Jet Airways Ltd, said on Friday it had received a sealed bid from Etihad Airways, and it would submit the bid to lenders of the ailing carrier for examination.

SBI Capital Markets Ltd also said it had received a few unsolicited offers for the airline, which the lenders would deliberate upon afterwards.
