26. What is the procedure for transfer of bankruptcy file?

The application for transfer of file must be made in writing and must be submitted to the respective branch of Malaysia Department of Insolvency (MdI) together with the supporting documents to prove bankrupt stays in the applied area. Once the application has been received by MdI, the desk officer will file the application to the court. The court will then set a hearing date to hear and decide on the application whether to allow or not. For information, the period for transfer of file depends on the hearing date as fixed by the court. If the application for transfer of file is allowed, order will be issued and MdI will take action to transfer the file to the applied branch.
