The restriction imposed by Sec. 269T is on the repayment of loan or deposit otherwise than by an account payee chq. , if the amt. of loan or deposit is Rs. 20,000/- or more. IN the instant case, the deposit is converted into share capital and hence, sec. 269T will not be attracted.

There is no restriction either under IT Act or under Companies Act.

But , it is advisable to get a confirmation letter from the loan provider to treat it as share application money.

Share application form can also be signed by the loan provider to company.

There is no bar for conversion of loan into share capital. You are required to enter into agreement with lender for conversion of loan into capital.

Call a Board meeting and pass a resolution and file Form-2 and form 3 within 30 days.
