MY EXPERIENCE OF WORK FROM HOME


Work form Home is buzzword world over this month and Second half of March 2020 in India. We all are preparing for this to the extent possible. I am sharing my eight years of experience of work from home, hereunder:

I opted “work from home” in June 2012 and officially working from Home and later Home Office since 5th July 2012 the day I got my Certificate of Practice. Though, this was actually not my first experience nor something new for Indian. Indian Professionals, particularly Doctors, Vaidya, Haqims, Advocates, Vakils, Pleaders, Letter writers, deed writers, Landlords and even big traders has a history of work from home or have home offices.

Further Discussion on Manufacturing Activities in LLP


I recently published here a post analysing the law relating to manufacturing activities in a limited liability partnership. I, presently, have a strong view that manufacturing is not permitted under the present framework of the law. The parliament in its wisdom included trading as a permitted business for LLPs but not manufacturing under Section 2(e). According to my views, the Parliament may bring an amendment to include manufacturing as a permitted business for LLP. Any Office Memorandum issued by the Ministry or its withdrawal may not give LLPs permission to do the business of manufacturing without an amendment to the Act.

This blog post generated a debate. In this post, I reproduced a consolidation of all these discussions I was part:
