removal of additional director

meenakshi modi (PCS) (84 Points)

05 March 2010  

hi friends,

 

In a company an additional director was appointed. The Company wanted to remove the that director. That additional director can be removed in the session of another AGM. But there was a stay order from high court on that board resolution. Result of which the additional director was not removed.

 

Again there is a LAW which says that even after the stay on the board resolution additional director can be removed.
Narrate me on that.
 
 
can anyone plz help me with this...
 
regards
Meenakshi

Hi,

The additional directors shall hold office only up to the date of the next annual general meeting of the company

Hi,

If you can bear that director till the next AGM than that would be great as he will automatically have to vacate his office in the absence of regularization as mentioned in section 260. As per section 260 an additional directors shall hold office only up to the date of the next annual general meeting of the company.

However in view of the below mentioned case stay order given by the court appears to be out of the jurisdiction of court and invalid.

Khetan Industries Private Limited Vs. Manju Ravindra Prasad Khetan

In this case it was held by the court that shareholders have a right to remove a director unde section 284 which provides an inbuilt machinery for the enforcement of right and civil court has no jurisdiction to entertain the suit for removal of directors.

Revert if there is any doubt.
