About bankruptcy & debt Laws


The primary law dealing with the subject of bankruptcy and debt laws is the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016.

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (IBC) is a substitution to separated legal framework and a split institutional set-up which was kept on passing on poor outcomes for a significant long time loan bosses and troubled business searching for an exit. This will profit everybody loan bosses, troubled business, economy and the estimation of the assets will be expanded. The manner by which the law is starting at now being realized seems to focus more on fast operationalisation.

Since the IBC accommodates a period bound system, it puts gigantic weight on the promoters as wells as the lenders to quick track a trade off recipe or risk the asset being liquidated.

Bankruptcy is a legal proceeding involving a person or business that is unable to repay outstanding debts. Some of the distinguishing elements of the code are-

  • Comprehensive law – this code is a comprehensive law which envisages and regulates the process of insolvency and bankruptcy of all persons including corporates, partnerships, LLP’s and individuals.

  • Clarity in Process- there is a clear and unambiguous process to be followed by all stakeholders. There is also shift of control from shareholders and promoters to creditors.
  • New Regulatory Authority- it provides for constitution of a new regulatory authority, ‘Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India’ to regulate professionals, agencies and information utilities engaged in resolution of insolvencies of companies, partnership firms and individuals.

The Code plots a bankruptcy assurance handle for individuals, associations and affiliation firms. As showed by the Section 6 of the code it is communicated that the method may be begun by either the corporate record holder or the financial lenders and operational advance managers. The most extraordinary time limit of 180 days and 90 days increase just if the Adjudicating Authority is persuaded for realization of the very system, has been set for corporates and individuals.
