Facing Financial Challenges? Insolvency and Bankruptcy Laws in India

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) offers a framework for resolving financial distress and reviving businesses in India. Here's a simplified, 5-step breakdown of the process:

1. Initiation of Insolvency Proceedings:

  • Eligible applicants: The process can be initiated by creditors (financial or operational), the company itself (debtor), or regulatory authorities.
  • Filing application: A formal application is filed with the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT) or National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT) depending on the case specifics.
  • Adjudication by the Tribunal: The tribunal assesses the application and, upon admitting it, imposes a moratorium on legal proceedings against the debtor, providing a temporary break from creditor claims.

2. Appointment of an Insolvency Resolution Professional (IRP):

  • Selection by the Tribunal: The NCLT/NCLAT appoints an independent IRP to oversee the insolvency resolution process.
  • Responsibilities of the IRP: The IRP assesses the debtor’s financial situation, identifies potential buyers, and prepares a resolution plan aiming to revive the company and maximize value for stakeholders.

3. The Resolution Process:

  • Creditor engagement: The IRP convenes meetings with creditors to discuss the proposed resolution plan and negotiate a solution.
  • Resolution plan: The plan may involve restructuring debt, selling assets, or merging with another company, aiming to settle outstanding dues and ensure business continuity.
  • Voting by creditors: Creditors vote on the proposed resolution plan. Approval requires a majority vote by value (financial creditors) and number (operational creditors).

4. Outcome of the Process:

  • Resolution plan approved: If the plan is approved, the NCLT/NCLAT sanctions it, and the company is revived under the agreed-upon terms.
  • Resolution plan fails: If the plan is not approved, the NCLT/NCLAT initiates liquidation proceedings.

5. Liquidation (if applicable):

  • Appointment of a Liquidator: The Tribunal appoints a liquidator to sell the company’s assets in a transparent and orderly manner.
  • Distribution of proceeds: The proceeds from liquidation are used to settle outstanding dues in a specific order, prioritizing secured creditors, followed by unsecured creditors, and lastly, shareholders.

Remember: This is a simplified overview, and specific details can vary depending on the complexities of the case. Consulting with a qualified insolvency and bankruptcy lawyer is crucial to navigate the process effectively and protect your interests.
