1. No

2. Yes

3. Compant act is silent as far as definition is concerned.

Executive dir means a director who is drawing salary from the company or holding the designation of WTD or MD.

Little more reference :-
As per the explanation under section 269 of the Act, a whole-time director includes a director in the whole-time employment of the company. In other words, a director who devotes his whole time to the affairs of a company is called a whole-time director of the company. A whole-time director of a company cannot accept the position of a whole-time director in other companies, though he may accept office of non-whole-time director in other companies subject to the limits imposed by section 275 read with sections 277 and 278.
