SIPI has set up a Task Force on Insolvency Best Practices. The idea is that by designing this set of Best Practices the general quality of Insolvency Professionals would improve and the mutual trust between as well as the trust in the Insolvency Professionals work by the general public would be enhanced. Consequently Insolvency Professionals would be able to work more efficiently, which once again would enhance the trust in the insolvency profession on the market. 

The recommendations of the Task Force are being reviewed by a Joint Committee of SIPI, INSOL India and ASSOCHAM. Draft Guidelines have been placed in public domain for comments till 15 July. These will then be finalised and endorsed by the Board of SIPI, INSOL India and ASSOCHAM after wide consultation with stakeholders.
