On Friday, the corporate affairs ministry said the provision pertaining to personal guarantors to corporate debtors would come into force from December 1.
The Code provides for a market-driven and time-bound resolution for stressed assets.
A case is taken up for resolution under the law only after approval from the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT).
“In the first phase, personal guarantor to a corporate debtor is almost under commencement. The next would be the fresh start process, basically giving relief to very small borrowers who are not in a position to repay the debt. That may be in another four to six months. Then proprietorship and partnership and others,” he had said.
