Dear Ankita,

GM can be Annual General Meeting(AGM) or Extra-ordinary General Meeting(EGM).

AGM means Annual General Meeting.

Dear Ankita,


GM simply means any meeting of the shareholders of the company. some of the forms of GM are: EGM, AGM, court convened meeting u/s 391-394, court convened meeting for any other reason like winding up etc, statutory meeting.

whereas AGM is a specific meeting held u/s 166 of the companies act.


another difference between the two is: that in case of a GM other than AGM, all the matters are special matters, and that the comapny is free to set any agenda for the meeting.

whereas, in AGM, a company has to take the 4 ordinary matters compulsorily. it may choose to include other special matters also
