I have no exact point answer but you can refer to section 295, 297, 299, 300, 301, 303, 314.

This sections cover almost all the points for your question.

By provisions of Company Law a Individual can be a Director of upto 15 Companies.

Now, a person can be appointed as a Director in 

1. Existing Company, and

2. New Company.

To be appointed as a director in Existing Company, he is not required to give any such declaration. but , in consent letter itself it gives declaration that he is not disqualified to appoint as a director, i.e. he has not exceeds the maximum limit of directorship.

In case of New Company it has to be intimated in e-Form - 1. u can see in e-Form 1 there is a colum asking about the directorship in another companies. 

Jus have to keep in mind that he cnt b director of more than 15 Companies.

And, as a professional,

in your company if u have to appoint any one as a director who has already a DIN please track by his DIN No . that in which Companies he is a director and then go further.

As per section 275, a person can not be appointed as a Director in more than 15 companies. And 15 companies means the Public Limited Companies. It means he can be a directors in Any number of Private Limited Company but the limit to be a director is upto 15 companies only in case of Public Limited Companies.

To become a director in any company, a person is required to give declaration to the company that he is the director/ interested directo in following companies in Form 24 AA under Sec. 299 of CA, 1956. Ant moreover this information is required to be given by the director to his exiting companie also every year either at the end or at the begining of the Financial Year. No intimation is required to be given to the ROC or any other authority about his directorship in other companies. The format of Form 24 AA is as follows:

Dear All,

In the discussions as above section 305 of the Companies Act, 1956 has been missed out .Please go through the provisions of the same for necessary compliance.
