In this post, we will have a bird’s eye view on Sections notified on 1st June 2016 related to NCLT.

UPDATE: on 30th August 2013: Companies Bill 2012 became the Companies Act, 2013 (Act 18 of 2013).
Class Action is one of the youngest additions to Indian jurisprudence particularly, in Indian Corporate Jurisprudence. Class Action aims to prevent Oppression and Mismanagement in Companies. The Provisions relating to Oppression and Mismanagement are in Chapter XVI of the Companies Bill, 2012.
In this post, I will cover Section 241 – 244 which deals with normal provisions.
In next post, I will discuss Section 245 dealing with Class Action and after that Section 246 read with Section 373 to 341.

I have a small piece in 109th edition of the e-Magazine from ICSI Mysore Chapter “Shareholders’ duty of to ask” I am thankful to my friends Ms. K Sarina Chouta Harish and Mr. Dattatri H M who made great afforts for editorial inputs. Here is full piece:
We are living in an era of corporate governance but who is really interested in it! All efforts by the corporate governance are directed at bringing more transparency to the stakeholders for enabling their participation in decision-making process. If that be the case on one hand, on the other, the age-old concept of fiduciary relationship of board of directors, our law and law enforcement agencies render protection to the right of the board of directors to maintain complete secrecy of its decision-making. I am afraid; something is wrongly settled as law. There has to be a reality check…..
