Centre for Insolvency & Bankruptcy


India is in the process of establishing a robust insolvency framework with the enactment of Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016. The Code has made rapid strides in short time and is one of the success stories of recent Indian economic reforms. A first in India, the Centre for Insolvency and Bankruptcy has been set up as an apex institute of learning in insolvency through education and training by active stakeholder engagement and participation.

The GIP will be delivered through the Centre and its initiatives.

The Centre will also serve as an apex school of learning on insolvency and related areas, in association with the key stakeholders and institutions. The Chairs will be headed by eminent experts and thinkers who will lead the thinking and execution by the Centre.

Dr K.L Dhingra is the Head of Centre for Insolvency & Bankruptcy.

Programme Overview

The Graduate Insolvency Programme (GIP) is the first of its kind programme for those aspiring to take up the discipline of insolvency professional as a career or seeking to take up other roles in the value chain, in India and in foreign jurisdictions. A student who completes the GIP will be eligible for registration as insolvency professional under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016, without having to wait to acquire the 10-year experience as required by the Code at present.

For those aspiring to become in-house counsels or serve as advisors to stakeholders in insolvency, liquidation, bankruptcy or turnaround process, the GIP will benefit at entry level and in career growth. The GIP will also be great value to those who elect to become academics or researchers or work in media houses.

An insolvency professional, serving as a licenced practitioner or in any other capacity, needs not only the domain knowledge but also a range of skills, multiple abilities and extra-ordinary qualities. It also needs a fair degree of appreciation of cultures, social and other factors surrounding an insolvency proceeding. An insolvency professional also has ethical and moral obligations. The GIP offers all that the market expects from a high-quality insolvency professional. A student can also start earning in the second year.

Recognised by the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India and curated by a group comprising eminent economists, insolvency, financial, legal and other experts, GIP is designed to provide exposure to real-time situations and on-ground training. The programme offers opportunities to work with leading insolvency professionals and other stakeholders providing the graduates the skill and experience that will help them to take their career tot he next level and increase marketability to employers.
