Application of Sec 295 of the Companies Act, 1956

Case 1 : Loan by Ltd Co. to Pvt Com (not being Subsidiary) - applicable.

Case 2 : Loan by Ltd Co. to Pvt Com (being Subsidiary*) - NOT applicable.

* so in case of Ltd company being Shareholder of Pvt Co. Sec 295 will apply if holding is 50% or less.

Sec.295 says without obtaining the previous approval of the Central Government in that behalf shall, directly or indirectly, make any loan to, or give any guarantee or provide any security in connection with a loan made by any other person to, or to any other person by 

(C)any private company of which any such director is a director or member.

 

So here ltd co with out approval of CG cant make loan or othewise if made director has to vacate u/s 283

After compliance of sec.295 , Here Sec.372 A will  also be applicable. As sec says no company  can give directly or indirectly loan to any other body corporate, 

1.Exceeding its 60% of (PUC+Reserves)

or 2. Exceeding its 100% of free Reserves which ever is more

and with out special resolution passed by ltd co.
