 Dear Vikas this question is to be decided under section 166 read with section 210.


Check section 166 for period between two agm must be 15 month...and


Check section 210 for 6 month limit.

Company Secretary

Section 166(1) of the Companies act 1956 states that "not more then fifteen months shall elapse between the date of one AGM of the Company and that of the next".


Section 210(3) states that, " profit & loss account of the Company shall relate to the period beginning with the day immediately after the period for which the account was last submitted and ending with a day which shall not precede the day of meeting by more then six months."


Collectively, the date of AGM should be the within 6 months from the close of financial year or within 15 months from the last AGM, which ever is earliar.

Could somebody help me in the following:

What would be the financial year of a company incorporated on 9th February, 2009 and when it has to hold the first AGM and also what would be the due date for holding AGM?


The first Financial year of the Company will be from 09th February, 2009 to 31st March, 2010. The first AGM is required to be held within 18 months from the date of incorporation as per Section 166(1) of the Companies Act, 1956. So the first AGM should be held on or before 8th August, 2010, which is also its due date.
