Insolvency & Bankruptcy Code:
One of the important business supporting element is to establish a mechanism to settle failed or bankrupt entities without causing damage to any players in the economy. Continuation of financially non-viable businesses results into locking of funds and physical assets. Similarly, it creates stress for the lender who has provided loan to such distressed entities. For this, a bankruptcy code was much needed in form of set of laws for resolution of failed entities.
For establishing an insolvency regulation related to entities and individuals, the Parliament has enacted Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016. The Code offers a uniform, comprehensive insolvency legislation encompassing all companies, partnerships and individuals (other than financial firms). The Code provides clear, coherent and speedy process for early identification of financial distress and resolution of entities if the underlying business is found to be viable. It suggests two options – a restructuring if the firm is viable and liquidation if it is not financially viable. Resolution should be done quickly and judiciously to ensure that business is not stuck. The Code specifies a timeframe — 180 days after the process is initiated, plus a 90-day extension — for resolving insolvency.
