About the Conference

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 is a recent law that consolidates and simplifies the insolvency resolution and bankruptcy process which was previously scattered in various laws. The implementation of the Act is based on four pillars, including creditors, insolvency professionals, adjudicatory mechanism, and resolution applicants. The new regime aims to shorten the time for resolution of debts and cut down delays in the recovery of dues of creditors. In this backdrop, it is desirable to analyse the implementation of the Code, its impact, its efficacy and its interaction with other laws like Securities and Exchange Board of India Act (SEBI) and FEMA etc. Attending the conference on IBC can provide valuable insights on the changes brought by the new law and how it can benefit businesses and individuals.
