This one-volume comprehensive and exhaustive Digest on the subject of Insolvency and Bankruptcy Laws is a complete source for the entire case law on the subject, from 1950 to the present* as laid down by the Supreme Court.
The Digest has been conceived and planned on the time-tested SCC index system to enable the discovery of all the rulings, easily and quickly. Case-law has been digested under important topic headings like Company Insolvency/Corporate Insolvency/Official Liquidator; RBI Role and Powers; NCLT/NCLAT; Priority of Debts and Dues of Insolvent/Statutory Charge.
Further, case-law has also been digested exhaustively under all the important governing statutes and Rules and Regulations like:
1) Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016; 2) Presidency Towns Insolvency Act, 1909; 3) Provincial Insolvency Act, 1920, 4) Insolvency and Bankruptcy (Application to Adjudicating Authority) Rules, 2016; 5) Insolvency and Bankruptcy (Application to Adjudicating Authority for Insolvency Resolution Process for Personal Guarantors to Corporate Debtors) Rules, 2019; 6) Insolvency and Bankruptcy (Insolvency and Liquidation Proceedings of Financial Service Providers and Application to Adjudicatory Authority) Rules, 2019; 7) Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (Information Utilities) Regulations, 2017, 8) Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (Insolvency Professionals) Regulations, 2016; 9) Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (Liquidation Process) Regulations, 2016; 10) Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (Insolvency Resolution Process for Corporate Persons) Regulations, 2016; 11) Maharashtra Relief Undertakings (Special Provisions) Act, 1958 (96 of 1958); 12) National Company Law Tribunal Rules, 2016; 13) National Company Law Appellate Tribunal Rules, 2016; 14) Travancore (Insolvency) Regulation, 1090/Travancore Insolvency Regulation, 1108
The rulings have been arranged under both topic and statutory headings, interconnected by a well-planned cross-reference system supported by synopsis wherever necessary to make research of relevant rulings convenient. Another very useful feature of this Digest is that since digest notes on the same or similar points are naturally placed close to each other, by locating the digest notes on any known case from the Table of Cases Digested, other relevant rulings on that point can easily be located nearby. The regular features like cross-citations, annotations, Coram details, editorial notes, and comments also continue.
This systematic, analytical and comprehensive one-volume digest will be of immense use to the courts, legal professionals, and members of the Bench.
*The case-law covered in the digest is from 1950 to (2021) 11 SCC including (2020) 17 to 20 SCC.
