(2) For the purposes of this section, there is a change in the constitution of the firm
(a) if one or more of the partners cease to be partners or one or more new partners are admitted, in such circumstances that one or more of the persons who were partners of the firm before the change continue as partner or partners after the change ; or
(b) where all the partners continue with a change in their respective shares or in the shares of some of them :
[Provided that nothing contained in clause (a) shall apply to a case where the firm is dissolved on the death of any of its partners.]
If out of three two had retired first and then two had joined .......then at a particular point of time there will be one left only ........which means dissolution of firm.
