Dear Ms. Khushboo,
 
Approval of company in general meeting referred to in paragraph 1 of Part III of Schedule XIII for the appointment of and the remuneration payable to company managerial personal need not be the prior approval of the company (i.e. the company resolution regarding approval need not be passed prior to the appointment of the managerial person) or the approval within 90 days from the date of the appointment. He/She may be initially be appointed by resolution passed by the Board subject to the approval of the company in general meeting and such approval may be obtained in the first general meeting of the company held immediately after his/her appointment and fixation of remuneration by the Board. {Circular No. 2/94 dated 10th February, 1994}.

 Hi Sneha

In my view

(if Terms of Agreement as per Schedule XIII)

1. Conduct BM -Board Resolution for appointment of MD

2. Form 23 filing with ROC within 30 Days

3. Form 25-C filing with ROC within 90 days of appointment.

 

(if Terms of Agreement NOT  as per Schedule XIII)

1. Conduct BM-for appointment of Person as MD with Terms

2. Call of EGM, and get approval from Shareholders on the same

3. File Form 23 with ROC within 30 Days

4. File Form 25-A with ROC within 90 days of appointment.

 

Other views solicited.

 

regards

Santosh Shah

Dear sir,

A circular is quoted above ( 2/94 of  10th Feb, 1994) to the effect that there is no time limit within which the Company has to get the shareholders' approval for the remuneration package to be paid to MD/WTD, which is approved by the Remuneration committee and the Board. For instance, if the package is approved by the Board on 1/1/13, taking effect from the same day, can it be approved at the next general meeting which is AGM to be held on 30/9/13.  Or is it necessary to have an EGM for this purpose only.  Such a requirement would put  the company to lot of expenditure by way of postage, printing, hiring of hall etc.  Thanks in advance for your esteemed opinion.

N.R.Ranganathan.
