New Delhi: A Bill to amend Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016, has been introduced in the Lok Sabha to bring relief to the home buyers and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs). The Bill will be moved in the Lok Sabha by interim Finance Minister Piyush Goyal today. Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (Amendment) Ordinance will save the buyers when builders declare bankruptcy in the middle of a real estate project. When amended, the Bill would bring a major economic reform and allow buyer of a real estate project to be treated as a financial creditor. When a company is bankrupt, financial creditors (banks) have the first right over the proceeds of assets. Now, when the buyers are also treated like financial creditors, they would also stake a claim in the assets’ sale as well as in the bankruptcy proceedings. The move also comes at a time when many home buyers are facing hardships on account of delayed and incomplete real estate projects.
