Description
Central Government had amended Companies Act, 1956 through the Companies (Second Amendment) Act, 2002 inserting Part VIA, comprising of sections 424A to 424L dealing with Revival and Rehabilitation of Sick Industrial Companies. Subsequently, Sick Industrial Companies (Special Provisions) Repeal Act, 2003 was enacted to repeal Sick Industrial Companies (Special Provisions) Act, 1985. Main object of Companies (Second Amendment) Act, 2002 was the constitution of the National Company Law Tribunal and the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal. However, the constitutionality of the Tribunal was challenged in various courts and in the case of Union of India v R. Gandhi (2007) 76 SCL 350 (SC) the Supreme Court held that the issues with regard to the constitution of the Tribunal and the areas of their jurisdiction need to be given a fresh look and the matter deserves to be heard by a Constitution Bench. Recently, the Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of the Companies (Second Amendment) Act, 2002 but at the same time has shown reservations with regard to the provisions of Parts IB and 1C. So long as the Tribunals are not constituted, Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR) as well as Appellate Authority for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (AAIFR) continue to function and deal with the Sick Industrial Companies. Sickness in industry has been an epidemic which continues to plague the industry. This book on Sick Industries and BIFR since its first edition has been appreciated for its contents. The present edition has been thoroughly revised on the basis of the available case law. The Securitisation and Reconstruction of Financial Assets and Enforcement of Security Interest Act, 2002 was enacted in 2002 to facilitate speedy recovery of the dues of banks and financial institutions from defaulting borrowers. SIC A, 1985 was also amended through this Act inserting two provisos in section 15 which restrain certain companies from making reference to BIFR and in certain cases empower creditors to move against a company whose reference is already registered with BIFR. SARFAESI Act is discussed in detail in a Separate Division. We have maintained the presentation of the book as in the previous edition. Part I covers commentary on the provisions of SIC A, 1985 alongwith related rules, regulations and provisions of allied Acts; Part II
