Can Homebuyer's Claim For Apartment Be Rejected For Not Filing Claim During Insolvency Process Against Builder? Supreme Court To Decide

Case Title: Ayush Agarwal vs Jaypee Infratech Ltd. & Ors.

Citation: Civil Appeal No. 5185/2024

The Supreme Court of India is set to determine whether the non-filing of a claim during the insolvency resolution process of a builder can result in the rejection of a homebuyer's claim for allotment of apartment.

The case surrounds the insolvency process of Jaypee Infratech Limited. Its resolution plan was approved by the National Company Law Tribunal and was subsequently challenged in the Appellate Tribunal. In the main appeal, several intervention applications were filed including the one filed by the present appellant, an allottee of unit in Kosmos. The same was supposed to be developed by Jaypee.

The Division Bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta, while issuing notice in the instant appeal, also added:

“We clarify that the issue of notice in the present appeal will not come in the way of execution/implementation of the resolution plan. Allotment of the unit to the appellant, if made, will be subject to the outcome of the present appeal and the right and claim of the appellant.”

Ambiguities In Uploading Of NCLT Orders, Requirement Of Enclosing Certified Copies With Appeal: Supreme Court Seeks IBBI Clarification

Case Title: Manan Chopra and Ors vs Soni Realtors Pvt Ltd.

Citation: Civil Appeal No. 5452/2024

The Supreme Court of India (on May 06) issued notice to the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India, inter-alia, on the requirement to obtain a certified copy of the order and attach the same with the appeal.

The Bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta has issued notice considering that there is “considerable ambiguity” in certain issues concerning the service of the orders passed by the National Company Law Tribunal, uploading of orders on the website, and the one mentioned above.

"We are also inclined to issue notice to the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India, as there appears to be considerable ambiguity concerning service of the orders passed by the National Company Law Tribunal, uploading of orders on the website and also the requirement to obtain a certified copy of the order and enclose the same with the appeal."

In view of this, the Insolvency Board has been asked to examine whether the process requires any clarification, modification, or simplification.
