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.
