The government on Friday notified rules under the insolvency law to deal with resolution of financial service providers, excluding banks. The corporate affairs ministry has notified the Insolvency and Bankruptcy (Insolvency and Liquidation Proceedings of Financial Service Providers and Application to Adjudicating Authority) Rules, 2019 (Rules). It will provide a generic framework for insolvency and liquidation proceedings of systemically important Financial Service Providers (FSPs) other than banks, an official statement said.

The move also comes against the backdrop of instances of various FSPs facing problems.
