The Ministry Corporate Affairs (MCA) has, since October 2017, notified Section 247 of the Companies Act, 2013 and introduced the Companies (Registered Valuers and Valuation) Rules, 2017. The MCA has designated the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (IBBI) as the authority for implementing the new regime of Registered Valuers apart from insolvency resolution professionals.

Transitional Provision

  • Any person, who may be rendering valuation services under Act, on the date of commencement of these rules, may continue to render valuation service without a certificate of registration under these rules upto 31st Jan, 2019:
  • Provided that if a company has appointed any valuer before such date and the valuation or any part of it has not been completed before 31st January, 2019, the valuer shall complete such valuation or such parth with three months thereafter.
