SC rules regarding Equity-Based Jurisdiction of NCLT & NCLAT for IBC Matters

In Pratap Technocrats (P) Ltd. v. Monitoring Committee of Reliance Infratel Limited,[1] the Supreme Court held that the NCLT or the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (‘NCLAT’) cannot interfere with the commercial wisdom underlying the approval granted by the Committee of Creditors (‘CoC’) to the resolution plan. The jurisdiction of NCLAT or NCLT is statutorily defined and cannot be equated with a jurisdiction in equity, that operates independently of the provision of the statute.
