The Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy and the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India are delighted to present “Understanding the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016: Analysing Developments in Jurisprudence.”

In the two years since the enactment of the Code, stakeholders in the insolvency eco-system have looked to case law to provide clarity on key concepts under the Code, and to help in the smooth functioning of the processes under the Code. This publication captures such case law developments on fifteen select issues that have been most heavily litigated under the Code. We hope that this publication will serve as a useful reference point for those wishing to understand how jurisprudence under the Code has evolved and enriched practice of the Code in the country.
