    Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (IBBI) has approved that the National Law Institute University, Bhopal shall offer two-year Graduate Insolvency Programme (GIP) for young and bright minds having the prescribed qualification in relevant disciplines to become Insolvency Professionals (IP).
