NCLT Appellate Tribunal

The NCLT Appellate Tribunal, or the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal (NCLAT), is a quasi-judicial body in India. It has been established under the Companies Act 2013 to hear appeals against orders passed by the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT). It deals with corporate and insolvency matters. NCLAT comprises a Chairperson and Judicial and Technical Members. The Chairperson is generally a retired judge of the Supreme Court, and the Judicial and Technical Members are appointed based on their expertise in matters pertaining to company laws and insolvency.

NCLAT majorly deals with the appeals against orders and decisions of the NCLT benches across India. It hears appeals related to company law, insolvency and bankruptcy, mergers and acquisitions and other corporate matters. NCLAT has similar powers as that of a civil court. It can issue orders, summon witnesses and direct the production of necessary papers. NCLAT serves as the first appellate authority for matters decided by NCLT. Its decisions can be appealed to the Supreme Court of India. It plays a crucial role in ensuring the smooth functioning of India’s corporate and insolvency resolution processes.
