The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016.

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (IBC) is the bankruptcy law of India which seeks to consolidate the existing framework by creating a single law for insolvency and bankruptcy. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2015 was introduced in LokSabha in December 2015. It was passed by LokSabha on 5 May 2016.Under provision of section 408 & 410 of the Company Act, 2013, the central government shall by notification, constitute, with effect such as may be specified therein, a tribunal to be known as the National Company Law Tribunal & National Company Law Appellate Tribunal respectively. The Code received the assent of the President of India on 28 May 2016. Certain provisions of the Act have come into force from 5 August and 19 August 2016.The bankruptcy code is a one stop solution for resolving insolvencies which at present is a long process and does not offer an economically viable arrangement. A strong insolvency framework where the cost and the time incurred is minimized in attaining liquidation has been long overdue in India. The code will be able to protect the interests of small investors and make the process of doing business a less awkward process.

The first insolvency resolution order under this code was passed by National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) in the case of “Synergies-Dooray Automotive Ltd.” on 14 August 2017 and the second resolution plan was submitted in the case of “Prowess International Private Limited” represented by Advocate Akhilesh Kumar Shrivastava and Akash Sharma. The plea for insolvency was submitted by company on 23 January 2017. The resolution plan was submitted to NCLT within a period of 180-day period as required by the code, and the approval for the same was received on 2 August 2017 from the tribunal. The final order was uploaded on 14 August 2017 on the NCLT.
