Focused on government dues prioritization, post-IBC tax law changes, and the challenging interplay between GST and IBC, the essay delves into crucial judgments and implications for businesses and creditors. Examining tax liabilities during the Corporate Insolvency Resolution Process (CIRP), it addresses challenges, judicial interventions, and nuances surrounding tax recovery through a corporate debtor’s property. The article offers recommendations for policymakers and practitioners to enhance the efficiency of the insolvency framework, advocating for harmonization, clarity in GST provisions, reforms, capacity building, adoption of best practices, and timely judicial intervention.
