Plenary Session IV: Judicial Intervention In IBC – Strengths & Shortcomings

The main reason for delay in the insolvency process so far was the presence of multiple laws governing insolvency. Judicial intervention and the inability of the Debt Recovery Tribunals (DRTs) have prevented lenders and Asset Reconstruction Companies (ARCs) from expediting recoveries under the earlier regime. This session talks about the strength & shortcoming roles that judicial intervention has had on the IBC.
