Deposits / unsecured loans


26 June 2011  

Dear All,


X ( private limited) is a holding company of B ( private limited).

Now the directors & their relatives of X ( private limited) wants to give unsecured loans / deposits to B ( private limited) which is a subsidiary of X ( private limited).

Whether the said deposits are exempted under Deposit rules?

Please clarify.

As per Section 3(1)(iii) a Private Company can not accept deposits other than its members, directors or their relatives.

And as per Comapnies (Acceptance of Deposit) Rules, 1975 deposit accepted by a Private Company from its Directors, members and their relatives are exempted deposit.

Therefore, a Private Company can only accept deposits from its Directors, Members and their relatives and deposit rules would not apply on it and it will be shown as unsecured loans.

Sec. 58A and Deposit Rules  are not applicable on Private compalnies..  this will be treated as unsecured loan..  sec. 292 of companies act applicable here.

I think here deposit rules will be having a role to play as directors are giving the loan in their individual  capacity and not the holding company
