Presently provisions of Section 372A of Companies Act 1956 relating to Inter-corporate loans and investments are not applicable to private companies
However, now corresponding new Section 186 of Companies Act 2013 relating to Loan and investment by company. (which is yet to be made effective) has taken away such exemption from private companies Compliance on the part of private companies will increase substantially.
