As per our reports, the Finance Minister ordered suspension of new insolvency proceedings for a year. This has made the companies turn to ‘schemes’ under Companies Act, 2013. The Companies Act gives the composition to a system of 'bargain’ between 'an organization and its banks or any class of them' or 'an organization and its individuals or any class of them'. The plan procedure under the Companies Act is an appropriate alternative to the IBC.
To begin with, it is a collective process. A plan that is validated by larger part at accumulation of creditors (or class of them) or individuals (investors) and is authorized by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), is official on the organization and its lenders and shareholders. Second, it gives creditors the ability to work with the contemporaneous administrations of distressed organizations. In distinction to the IBC, which depends on a 'loan boss in-charge' or creditor prototype of bankruptcy goals, creditors can consider proposals without change in ownership/management, except in cases of fraud or wilful default.
Third, the plan procedure can be employed effectively to implement resolution plans effectively which are approved under the framework of stressed assets of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Fourth, the rationale for the reviewing of plans by the NCLT is narrow. Courts have typically scrutinized whether the strategy and offered terms of a plan, are fair, just, and reasonable for all parties involved. Fifth, the procedure costs under the Companies Act are lower to CIRP costs involved under the IBC.
