MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRPERSON, IBBI “The economy witnessed freedom of entry in the 1990s and the freedom to continue business in the 2000s. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 now provides the ultimate economic freedom, freedom to exit, wherever required, and completes the suite of economic freedom. This will unleash and realise the full potential of every person and promote inclusive growth. By liberating resources stuck up in inefficient and defunct firms for continuous recycling, it will change the script from ‘hopeless end’ to ‘endless hope.”
