The government has proposed a slew of changes to the six-year old Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code and has also sought suggestions from the public. The aim is to fast-track the resolution process and strengthen the functioning of IBC. So will the proposed overhaul make the insolvency resolution process more effective? 

A Bill to amend the IBC is likely to come up in the Budget session of Parliament. Meanwhile, India’s education sector is also crying for the budget maker’s attention. A recent countrywide survey has revealed that India’s school students have regressed in their basic reading ability to pre-2012 levels while their basic maths skills declined to 2018 levels. Is this then a wake-up call for policymakers to turn their focus on school education? 

In other news, ports-to-energy player has announced a follow-on public offering worth Rs 20,000 crore. The FPO will open on January 27 and close on January 31. However, a day after the announcement, shares of the company slumped over 4 per cent to hit a two-month low of 3,446 rupees per share. However, analysts recommend subscribing to the offer as they re-iterate the conglomerate’s large play on renewable energy.

This segment of the podcast tells you more about this forum. Also, how it came into being, and what purpose it serves.
