IBBI Notifies Mechanism For Issuing Regulations Under Insolvency Law

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India has notified the mechanism that needs to be followed for issuing regulations under the insolvency law.

A set of procedures would be followed for making or amending regulations under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code. An official release issued today said that the IBBI had notified the mechanism for issuing regulations.

Under the mechanism, a draft of regulations would be put out for public consultations as well as a statement of the problem that the proposed regulation seeks to address. Among others, there would be an economic analysis of the proposed regulations and a statement carrying relevant norms advocated by international standard setting agencies and the international best practices.

"The IBBI shall allow at least twenty-one days for public to submit their comments. If the governing board (of the IBBI) decides to approve regulations in a form substantially different from the proposed regulations, it shall repeat the process under the issuing regulations," the release said.

In case, there is an urgent need for issuing or amending regulations, then the consultation process could be done away with.
