ALL FEMALE COMPANY SECRETARIES
Sub: Appointment of Women Directors – compliance with clause 49 (II) (A) (1) of Listing agreement and Section 149 of Companies Act, 2013.
Dear Professional Colleagues,
As you are well aware that SEBI vide its circular dated 17th April, 2014 has made it mandatory for all the listed companies to appoint atleast one Woman Director on their Board of Directors by 31st March, 2015 in alignment with the requirement of Section 149 of the Companies Act, 2013, under corporate governance norms.
With just 08 days left to meet the deadline, SEBI is very serious on the compliance to these norms and has proactively sought the action initiated to ensure compliance with the aforesaid requirement for the companies that are yet to appoint a Woman Director on their board.
The Institute is preparing a Panel of Female Company Secretaries for appointment of Woman Director on the Board of Listed Companies and the same would be hosted on the Institute’s website.
I request all the Female Company Secretaries, who are willing to be appointed on the Board of Directors of Listed Companies to forward their particulars in attached format to firstname.lastname@example.org by return e-mail.
