– V S Kaveri & Dipali Krishnakumar
Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) is a landmark legislation in India, expected to relieve banks from stressed assets. In the initial stage of implementation, the provisions with respect to Corporate Debtors have been made effective. Banks have been referring cases for resolution under IBC since early 2017. In the initial stage of implementation of IBC, several issues and hurdles have come up. IBC code has undergone amendments to resolve these issues. While banks are developing their preference to IBC for early corporate insolvency and bankruptcy, there seems to be knowledge gap on the part of bank executives regarding the Insolvency Resolution Process. An understanding of the resolution process would enable bank executives to participate in the meetings of Committee of Creditors more effectively, besides observing due diligence in the matters concerning corporate insolvency. Keeping this felt need in mind, the article discusses the relevant provisions of IBC pertaining to the resolution process for the benefit of bank executives.
