Format of Section 9 Petition to Start the Process of Insolvency Resolution

Format of Section 9 Petition to Start the Process of Insolvency Resolution

The insolvency resolution process is the process associated with an insolvent individual with a focus towards the followings:

  1. Making sure that the operational and financial creditors are getting paid.
  2. Making sure that the corporate debtor has an option to pay back the creditors
  3. Providing a resolution for an insolvent entity.
  4. Fair and expedited distribution of the corporate debtor’s assets among the creditors.

However, in order to start the insolvency resolution process, one needs to file a section 9 petition under the IBC. Who can and who can’ file this application is information that can be found right here. Nevertheless, even when one knows that that can file the resolution application, its acceptance by the Adjudicating authority (The NCLT) is subjective to its correctness. Therefore, through the course of this blog, you are going to learn about the format of Section 9 petition to initiate the insolvency resolution process.  

Before the section 9 petition format, you should know about

The difference between the financial and operational creditors, for the format of the application differs for both of these types of creditors.

  1. Operational creditor: Operational creditor is the creditor to who the corporate debtor owes operational debt.
    1. Operational debt entails the liabilities that a corporate debtor incurs through principle activities like accounts payable, due taxes etc.
  2. Financial creditor: Financial creditor is the creditor to who the corporate debtor owes the financial debt to.
    1. Financial debt entails the liabilities that a corporate debtor incurs through non-operational activities or the activities that are not critical to the company’s operations.

Therefore, for now, let us discuss the format of section 9 petition meant for the financial creditor first.

Note for understanding the format: the comments inside the “/**/” are not there in the actual form, we have put it forward to explain the intricacies of the details that the insolvency professionals are to enter in this form.
