Further, an attempt has also been made to provide assistance to NCLT Benches for dealing with applications u/s 7 or 9 for admission/rejection of claim. However, the obligation of the Resolution professionals (RPs) have also been  increased as the amendment now requires the RPs  to not just take handover of the assets of the Corporate Debtor (CD) but also verify asset by asset list of the CD,  tally the same with the financials of the CD, and to report the same while making application u/s 19(2), if not found in conformity with the assets shown in the financials of the CD. Also, for condonation of delay of claims filed by the stakeholders, the amendment now requires the RP to file application before AA.
