Report No. 26
This is taken from section 43, Presidency Act. There is nothing corresponding to it in the Provincial Act. It has been adopted as a useful provision, as necessary to ensure proper compliance by the insolvent with his statutory duties1.
The mention of "contempt of court", has been omitted as the new Act will apply to the mofussil also.

Sub-clause (2)-The Provincial Act uses the words "provable under this Act", while the Presidency Act uses the words "provable in insolvency". The two are same in substance.

Sub-clause (4)-The words "or in the nature of a surety" have been added on the lines of section 45(4) of the Presidency Act. It may be that even without these words, the result would be the same. But lest their omission should throw a doubt on the question, they have been retained.
