In words of Justice Dhananjaya Y. Chandrachud, ‘corporate reorganization is one of the means that can be employed to meet the challenges which confront business.’ Cross border merger is one such kind of arrangement which helps to meet the challenges as well as enter international market. Cross border mergers are deals between foreign companies and domestic firms in the target country.

Nowadays it is not sufficient for a business to be powerful in its own country; rather it should make a powerful presence worldwide. The percentage of cross border transactions in India has risen significantly. Cross border mergers have become a topic of interest mainly because they help a firm enter new international market.
