Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016

Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 is a novel initiative which aims at a complete overhaul of the corporate debt legislation. It marks the dawn of a new era, an era of progressive thinking, greater transparency and stake holder activism. The new code seeks to repose lenders’ confidence in corporate debt structure and brings out legislation in line lenders and borrowers requirements and expectations.

Time has come where we need to let go off the old debt recovery laws and embrace the new legislation. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 brings with it an array of welcome changes in almost every aspect of debt recovery.

The new Code requires an indepth study and analysis to appreciate the intention of the legislature and to face the new opportunities and challenges with ample preparedness.

To start on this journey of fresh learning, I am sharing my recent article on the topic “The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 – A dawn of new era of Debt Reforms” for the benefit of fellow professionals and others. Kindly go through the article and share your views to enrich and improve my knowledge in this new code.

Thanks and Regards
