    Highlighting the investment opportunities in India through the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) process, the Finance Minister said given the future potential of the Indian economy, the fair manner in which the IBC is now proceeding, it’s a great opportunity as far as investors are concerned and therefore those seriously thinking about investment in India.

    Mr Jaitley also understood that this reform has presented a great opportunity as far as entrepreneurship in India is concerned and a large number of investors have been coming in, showing a lot of interest, then bidding and counter bidding so that they are able to get hold of the companies itself.
