Possession Delay - NCLT


If the real estate company is in poor financial condition and is unable to continue or finish the concerned real estate project, home-buyers can initiate insolvency proceedings in the National Company Law Tribunal. MyAdvo will facilitate the entire process through an expert lawyer and will provide timely updates to you.

Before initiating insolvency proceedings, sending a legal notice to the builder serves as a final warning. In case the dispute is still not resolved, you should then file the application for initiating insolvency process. 

Steps involved in Insolvency proceedings against the real estate company

Document Verification

You will be required to send scanned copies of documents pertaining to the real estate property for verification by a lawyer.

Complaint Drafting

The application will be drafted and shared with you for review and approval within 7 days of receiving the documents.

Filing of Complaint

The application will be filed before the NCLT within 3 working days of approval of the draft.

Admission Hearing

The lawyer will make preliminary arguments before NCLT and get the Application admitted.

Appointment of Resolution Professional (RP)

NCLT will confirm a Resolution Professional to oversee the process.

Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process

The resolution process comprises of various stages: 1) Publication of notice; 2) Processing of claim; 3) Information Memorandum; 4) Meeting of Committee of Creditors (COC); 5) Call for resolution plan

Acceptance/Rejection of Resolution Plan

After receiving the resolution plan, the RP will conduct a meeting of COC for voting. If 66% of voting is done in favour of a resolution plan then it will be adopted by COC.


In case where a resolution plan is not accepted, COC will opt for liquidation of such real estate company.
