I have an issue in understanding the last clause of this section, the clause begins by saying "any person whose subsidiary or associate or any other form of entity, is engaged as on the date of appointment in consulting and specialised services as provided in sec144"
Q- How can a person have a subsidiary or associate?
Q-Who is providing to whom the specialised services as provided in 144?
