No need to adjourn the meeting if you can obtain the consent of all the members entitled to vote thereat, for shorter notice as specified in Section 171(2).

Nothing will happen...

Retirement by rotation system is not prohibited for a private com. though it is not mandatory.

So in this case u may continue with the existing notice....

However in your case following the current notice should not be interpreted in the following way:

""For future --- this pvt co. is bound to follow Retirement by rotation system.

If Mr A was liable to retire by rotation and as per the notice he was to be reappointed then no issue, reelect him and pass the resolution with the words "not liable to retire by rotation".

However if his reappointment was not considered in the notice and you want to continue his directorship, you will have to issue a fresh notice revising the agenda items. In that case also you need not adjourn the meeting. You can hold the meeting on the same say, however subject to obtaining the consent of all the members entitled to vote thereat as specified in Section 171(2).

You need to be the querist or approved CAclub expert to take part in this query .
