International Convention on Insolvency Resolution and Valuation

CA. Charanjot Singh Nanda

Vice President, ICAI

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy reforms in our country were ushered in by the enactment of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016. Through the resolution of the corporate debtor and the implementation of liquidation, the Code has proven effective in mitigating the vulnerabilities linked to financial stress caused by endogenous factors and the vulnerabilities linked to economic stress caused by exogenous factors resulting from changes in the business environment brought about by innovation and policy shifts. With a strong emphasis on promoting going concern status through revival and resolution, this ground- breaking law created a comprehensive, modern, and complex framework for handling both corporate and individual insolvency.

Valuation exercise is one of the crucial activities under IBC important for guaranteeing the timely settlement, maximizing value, and balancing the rights of all the stakeholders involved. The IBC and the recent regularisation of the valuation profession in the light of the requirements of the IBC have rightfully earned acclaim as a significant reform, providing much-needed stability to stakeholders across the nation.

I am thrilled to extend a warm invitation to all of you for the International Convention on Insolvency and Valuation, themed "RESOLVE-2024: Enabling Resolution, Maximizing Value," slated for 12 th and 13 th July 2024 in New Delhi.
