In some cases, the Liquidators have reportedly issued notice to the EPFO for participation in the stakeholders’ consultation committee meeting, treating them as operational creditors or Government agencies. In general terms, almost everyone associated with the Corporate Debtor is considered a stakeholder. However, Section 2(k) of the IBBI (Liquidation Process) Regulations, 2016 provides for a definition of the term ‘stakeholder.’ It reads, “stakeholders” means the stakeholders entitled to distribution of proceeds under section 53. This gives rise to a larger question: Does the EPFO come within the meaning of ‘stakeholder’ for the I & B Code and the connected liquidation process?

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (IBBI) has lately amended regulations concerning the backdoor entry of Ineligible Promoters. Under the amendments introduced to the liquidation process regulations, defaulting promoters who are barred from the resolution plan under section 29A of the IBC, cannot be a party in any manner to a compromise or arrangement of the corporate debtor under Section 230 of the Companies Act, 2013.

The new amendment also aims to restrict secured creditors from selling or transferring assets of a company undergoing a liquidation process to any person barred from submitting an insolvency resolution plan.
