Highest number of company petitions filed in Mumbai, why no NCLAT Bench? Bombay High Court to Central Government

Bombay High Court mentioned to the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) that in Mumbai, there are quite a number of company cases that are filed, hence a National Company Law Appellate Tribunal bench should be formed to deal with these types of cases.

Bombay High Court questioned the Ministry of Corporate Affairs for not having a NCLAT bench.

The bench consisting of Justice A.A. Sayed and Justice M.J. Jamdar, while hearing a petition where the petitioner appealed that NCLAT bench needs to be established in a number of places across the country including Mumbai. Adv. Ajinkya Jaibhave, on behalf of M.C.A. stated that NCLAT bench is only present in Delhi at the moment as Delhi is the capital city of the country.

Adv. Prakhash Pandya and Adv. Pratik Sarkar, on behalf of the petitioner stated that from the starting there has been fifteen National Company Law Tribunal(NCLT) across the country but only one NCLAT which is located in Delhi. Recently, another NCLAT has been introduced in Chennai.

Nicky Pokar filed this petition relying upon a case of the Supreme Court of India, [1]Swiss Ribbons (P) Ltd. v. Union of India where Attorney General K.K.Venogopal assured the court that more benches of NCLAT will be introduced across the country.

The petitioner, Nicky Pokar also mentioned in his plea that an e-filing tab must be introduced in the official site of NCLAT along with the payment of filing fees and dispensing with physical filing.
