1 Correspondent ET Prime

Taking off from the runway of Shri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi University, I’ve landed at ET Prime. Here, I will work on corporate-governance stories. Although I don't have a background in journalism, there is so much that the platform offers to me - from the freedom to choose my area of interest to explore what else excites me more. I love going out and observing things up close. Music and movies are my biggest stress busters. I believe your journey is all about learning, and mine has begun with ET Prime.

The crisis at NCLAT: why speedy resolution of corporate disputes is beyond reach

An interim chief, infrastructural constraints, and thousands of pending cases — the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal is weighed down by numerous challenges. Stakeholders say that even the latest step of notifying a new bench at Chennai is unlikely to bring immediate relief. It’s a crisis of sorts for the judicial system for resolving corporate disputes.

Cloud over India’s growth story: Poverty and inequality rose in most states in 2019

The Sustainable Development Goals Index released by Niti Aayog and the UN reveals some worrisome trends. India is losing its footing in key areas such as poverty alleviation, ending hunger, economic growth, and preserving life on land. It’s a setback for the country’s efforts to rapidly raise standards of living. The India growth story is under siege at the moment.

A big lapse, masked well: Air travellers kept flying in unscreened weeks after coronavirus outbreak

The first coronavirus death in China was reported on January 9. India reported its first case on January 30. In the intervening period, hordes of passengers potentially entered India without even knowing that they might be infected. Government correspondence suggests the authorities started taking steps in fits and starts. However, they are reluctant to talk about this for now.

Want to take your errant builder to NCLT? Make sure you have the requisite number

In order to curb frivolous appeals that have been flooding NCLT, the government has brought an amendment through ordinance that sets a minimum threshold limit for approaching the tribunal with respect to realty projects – 100 homebuyers or 10% of total allottees in a project, whichever is lesser. While builders have applauded the move, homebuyers categorised it as arbitrary.

The curious case of independent directors: To what extent are they liable for governance failures?

The Altico Capital saga has turned the spotlight on the role and liabilities of independent directors. Many of them believe they need more powers and are not culpable for governance failures. But not all independent directors and experts, including some well-known names, agree. As the debate simmers, over a thousand independent directors have chosen to exit silently in a year and a half. ET Prime does a deep-dive.

Love cheap international flights? A fresh “narrow-body” hell awaits you.

The trimmer Airbus A321XLR, a stretched version of the A320, has gotten a thunderous reception from airlines around the world, who are happy that it will help them get more bums on the seat, and thus more profits. The bad news? Even long international routes might now turn “cattle class”, with precious inches shaved off the cabin space. And it could create a world of pain for passengers — and even pilots.

Delhi High Court calls out Indiabulls for “harassment” of equity analysts

In 2012, Canadian research firm Veritas had penned a report that questioned corporate-governance practices at various Indiabulls companies. The group responded with a criminal complaint against the two authors, even getting one arrested, besides launching a broadside against Veritas. The Delhi High Court has found it “extreme” and “clearly not called for”.

Insolvency

The impact of scrapping RBI’s ‘February 12’ order: INR3.8 lakh crore of NPAs in limbo, and the bad-bank debate revived

The Supreme Court decision won’t dilute the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) because banks can still choose to drag defaulters to bankruptcy courts. However, resolution of default accounts filed in various tribunals already under the IBC will get further delayed. Erring promoters will get a chance to resolve their accounts with the banks without the NCLT coming in their way.
