The number of insolvency cases referred under the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) has gone up by 24 per cent in Q4FY23 after a slowdown in FY21 and FY22, said CARE Ratings.
According to the credit rating agency, the distribution of cases across sectors continues to remain broadly similar, compared to earlier periods given the extended resolution timelines.
In a report, CARE Ratings said the overall recovery rate till Q4FY23 was 31.82 per cent implying a haircut of approximately 68 per cent.
The cumulative recovery rate has been on a downtrend, decreasing from 43 per cent in Q1FY20 and 32.9 per cent in Q4FY22 as larger resolutions have already been executed and a significant number of liquidated cases were either Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR) cases and/or defunct with high-resolution time, coupled with lower recoverable values.
However, it has improved sequentially from Q3FY23 (30.4 per cent), CARE Ratings said.
