insolvency: IBBI seeks public comments on regulatory framework under insolvency law

2023-05-06 08:06:13

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (IBBI) on Saturday sought public comments on the regulations notified till date under the insolvency law as it looks to crowd source ideas for the regulatory framework.

The institution said that participation of the public, particularly the stakeholders in the insolvency ecosystem, will ensure that the regulations are informed by the legitimate needs of those interested in and affected by the regulations. It also noted that consulting public for the regulations would enable collective choice.

IBBI is a key institution in implementing the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC), which came into force in late 2016.

“In a dynamic environment, despite the best of efforts and intentions, a regulator in such novel and emerging regulatory regime may not always be able to address the ground realities. Further, the stakeholders may contemplate, at leisure, the important issues in the extant regulatory framework that hinder transactions and offer alternate solutions to address them. This is akin to crowdsourcing of ideas. This enables every idea to reach the regulator,” PTI quoted a release as saying.

IBC provides for a time-bound and market-linked resolution of stressed assets.

Comments from the public, including the stakeholders, have been sought till May 31 on the regulations notified under the IBC till date.

“The comments received between 4 th May, 2023 and 31st December, 2023 shall be processed together and following the due process, regulations will be modified to the extent considered necessary. It will be the endeavour of IBBI to notify modified regulations by 31st March, 2024 and bring them into force on 1st April, 2024,” reported PTI, citing the release.
