Navigating Financial Distress: CIRP Experts at Rajendra NCLT Law Firm

Understanding CIRP: A Lifeline for Businesses in Distress

Introduced under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC), 2016, CIRP provides a mechanism for resolving insolvency and maximizing value for all stakeholders involved. This process can be initiated by:

  • The Debtor Company: A company facing financial distress can file for CIRP itself, seeking a chance to restructure and become viable again.
  • Creditors: Financial or operational creditors owed money by the company can initiate CIRP proceedings if the debt remains unpaid.

Stages of CIRP: A Roadmap to Resolution

CIRP is a time-bound process with distinct stages:

  • Insolvency Petition: The process begins with filing a petition with the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), a specialized tribunal established for insolvency and bankruptcy matters.
  • Moratorium: Upon admitting the petition, the NCLT imposes a moratorium, temporarily prohibiting creditors from initiating legal proceedings against the company.
  • Appointment of Insolvency Resolution Professional (IRP): The NCLT appoints a qualified and independent IRP to oversee the CIRP process.
  • Creditor Committee Formation: An independent committee of creditors is formed to represent the interests of all financial and operational creditors.
  • Resolution Plan Development: The IRP, in consultation with the company management and the creditor committee, develops a resolution plan aiming to revive the company. This plan can involve restructuring debt, selling assets, or merging with another company.
  • Voting on the Resolution Plan: Creditors vote on the proposed resolution plan. If approved by a minimum percentage of creditors, the plan is implemented.
  • Exit from CIRP: If a resolution plan is approved and implemented, the company exits CIRP and continues its operations. If no viable resolution plan emerges within the stipulated time frame, the company goes into liquidation.
