India is perhaps the fastest growing economy in the world and the present government has visioned to make it a $5 trillion economy within the next few years. Lately, significant foreign investment has flowed in and many large transactions, like the acquisition of Flipkart by Walmart, have taken place. Realising the need to update the regulatory framework, enabling corporate acquisitions and restructuring, the government has been proactively modernising laws and regulations. The enactment of the Companies Act, 2013 and the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code are but two examples. Coupled with this, legal jurisprudence on corporate restructuring has been rapidly developing. Further, the advent of The National Company Law Tribunal, dealing with corporate schemes and insolvency cases, has added a new dimension to this evolution. A lot of water has flowed since the last edition of Mergers et al. The present edition has been significantly updated to ensure that the reader can use this volume as a one stop shop to find answers to almost all possible issues on the subject and does not feel the necessity to refer to any other book.
