Recent activities of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs or MOD has released a draft for strengthening IBC (Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code) on matters of cross-border insolvency. It will offer help to banks for accessing overseas assets of the companies that undergo resolution.ministry of corporate affairs image

The cross-border insolvency’s draft facilitates the adoption of United Nations Commission on International Trade Laws as the model law on issues of cross-border insolvency. In its initial stage, this framework will be for the corporate debtors only. Afterward, they will take the initiatives for the matters of personal insolvency resolution as well.

This law will maintain a balance between reorganization and liquidation of international companies opting for resolution after company registration. It is emerging as the most widely practiced legal framework for dealing with issues like cross-border insolvency while ensuring zero intrusion into the domestic insolvency rules and regulations of the country.
