The third edition of Company Meetings: Law, Practice and Procedure focuses on the new concepts and amendments brought in by the Companies Act, 2013. It includes guidance on conducting and convening meetings as well as on post meeting formalities. It exhaustively deals with the law, procedures and practices relating to all aspects of the meetings. This subject becomes more important on account of the fact that the provisions relating to the meetings of members and directors under the Companies Act, 2013 have become effective with effect from 1 April 2014.
This book has commented on changes introduced by the Companies Act, 2013, such as the attendance by directors in board meetings through videoconference and electronic voting in general meetings. The Companies Act, 2013 has also brought about vital changes with regard to board committees. Clause 49 of the Listing Agreement has also been recast and has affected to some extent the board and committee composition and meetings.
This edition of the book has attempted to encapsulate all these changes brought by the Companies Act, 2013 and also updated the commentary in the light of statutory changes and case laws. This book caters to the need of all types of companies – private and public, listed and unlisted and covers all types of meetings. It will be equally useful to company secretaries, lawyers and judges, and organisations other than companies can also use it as a practical guidebook."
