Examining the Question of Enforcement of Personal Guarantees Under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016.

Hon'ble Supreme court on 16th April 2018 admitted the matter filed by SBI for examining the invocation of personal guarantees during moratorium under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 'IBC' in (State Bank of India vs V Ramakrishnan & Anr.) .

The Report recommended insertion of an explanation to Section 14, which clarifies that section 14 does not intend to bar actions against assets of guarantors to the debts of the corporate debtor.

The present appeal to the Supreme Court has been filed by the State Bank of India, against an NCLAT judgment in the case of Veesons Energry Private Ltd. The NCLAT ruled that personal guarantees cannot be invoked when the company in favors of whom the guarantee was extended, is under moratorium.
