Filing of the list of stakeholders under Reg. 31(5)(d) of IBBI (Liquidation Process) Regulation 2016

In pursuance of clause (d) of sub-regulation (5) of regulation 31 of the IBBI (Liquidation Process) Regulations, 2016 (‘Liquidation Process Regulations’) requiring the liquidator to file a list of stakeholders on the electronic platform of the Board for dissemination on its website, the Board had issued the Circular No. IBBI/LIQ/40/2021 dated 4th March 2021 directing the liquidators to file the list of stakeholders and modification thereof, in the stipulated format, on the electronic platform,

In the said format, the particular / column “Identification No.” for seeking identification details of stakeholders is mentioned. It has come to notice that in a few instances, the details such as Aadhaar, PAN card, etc., are being filled therein. Such information is sensitive personal information that is prone to misuse and not to is revealed on public platforms. The ‘General Guidelines for securing Identity information and Sensitive personal data or information in compliance to Aadhaar Act, 2016 and Information Technology Act, 2000’ issued by the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology provides that any personal identifiable data including Aadhaar should not be published in the public domain.

To address this problem, this Circular in partial modification of the Circular under reference removes the column “Identification No.” from the particulars of the format stipulated therein. The insolvency professionals are directed to file the list of stakeholders of the respective corporate debtor under liquidation and modification thereof, in the revised format placed in Annexure, within three days of the preparation of the list or modification thereof, as the case may be. The rest of the contents of the above said Circular shall remain the same.
