a) IBBI vide press release no. IBBI/PR/2020/09 dated August 05, 2020 has amended the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (Voluntary Liquidation Process) Regulations, 2017.
b) The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 enables a corporate person to initiate voluntary liquidation process if it has no debt or it will be able to pay its debts fully from the proceeds of the assets. The corporate person appoints an insolvency professional to conduct the voluntary liquidation process by a resolution of members or partners, or contributories, as the case may be. However, there can be situations which may require appointment of another resolution professional as the liquidator. The amendment made to the Regulations today provides that the corporate person may replace the liquidator by appointing another insolvency professional as liquidator by a resolution of members or partners, or contributories, as the case may be.
c) The amended regulations are effective from today. These are available at www.mca.gov.in and www.ibbi.gov.in.
