April 10, 2020—Amidst Pandemic COVID-19 and Nationwide Locked out

1. Company is Legal Entity acting through its Board Company is a Legal Entity and it acts through its Board or Shareholders. Section 179 of the Companies Act, 2013 (“the Act”) empowers Board to exercise all such powers and to do all such acts and things as the company is authorized to exercise. However, the Board is subject to the provisions contained in the Act or in the Memorandum & Articles of Association of thecompany.

2. How to get the approval of the Board or its Committee The approval of Board of Directors or its Committee and modes of obtaining such approval is one of the most critical aspects of corporate compliance management. The Board can approve any transaction in democratic way with proper voting and making note of assent or dissent of any director in the Minutes of the meeting of the Board or its Committee like Audit Committee, Nomination and Remuneration Committee, Stakeholders Relationship Committee or Corporate Social Responsibility Committee.

The Board or its Committee may decide on any matter either of the following ways

a. By convening physical meeting or meeting through Video Conferencing or Audio Visual means; or

b. By circulating the Resolution with agenda and necessary documents by circulation and request for signing each Resolution as VOTED FOR or VOTED AGAINST.

Generally, the resolution was proposed to be passed when there is urgency or sometimes the resolution by circulation is preferred to avoid the procedural requirements of convening the physical Board Meeting.

3. What is the Cardinal Rule of approval of matters by the Board The Cardinal Rule to have the meeting of the Board/ it’s Committee to discuss the mattersrelated to the Company,is a properly convened and constituted meeting,where Board Members are physically present to discuss, deliberate and review documents/ papers/ reports/ certificates etc before taking any decision. The Director of a company need to act in good faith and in the best interests of the Company, its employees, the shareholders, the community and for the protection of environment and he need to exercise his duties with due and reasonable care, skill and diligence and with independent judgment.

The Companies Act, 2013 cast more responsibilities on the Director and he is held liable for any act of omission or commission by a company which had occurred with his knowledge, attributable through Board processes, and with his consent or connivance or where he had not acted diligently. Hence the participation of Director should be meaningful to save him from any liability. Hence for exercising the duty of Director diligently it’s preferred as a Rule to have the Board Meeting with physical presence of Board Members, however in case of emergency or urgency of situation or circumstance, the Board sometimes approve matters through Circular Resolution or through video conferencing facilities or audio visual means.

4. What is “Circular Resolution” Section 175 of the Act relates to “passing of resolution by circulation”. It is an alternative method of obtaining the approval of the Board of Directors for any transaction. Section 175 of the Act creates an exception to the general rule that the Board of Directors of the company shall exercise their powers collectively by means of resolution passed at its meeting.

In case 1/3rd or more of the total number of Directors of the company for the time being require, that any resolution under circulation must be decided at a meeting of the Board, then in that case the Chairperson need to put the resolution to be decided at a meeting of the Board and cannot be approved by circulation.

Where ever any resolution to be approved by Circulation, it has to be circulated in draft, together with the necessary papers, if any, to all the directors, or members of the committee, as the case may be, at their addresses registered with the company in India by hand delivery or by post or by courier, or through e-mail or fax and has been approved by a majority of the directors or members, who are entitled to vote on the resolution. Once the resolution is so approved it shall be deemed to have been duly passed by the Board or by a committee thereof by circulation.

A resolution as approved by Circulation shall be noted at a subsequent meeting of the Board or the committee thereof, as the case may be, and made part of the minutes of such meeting.

5. List of certain matters not to be dealt through circulating the Resolution Section 179(3) of the Companies Act, 2013 read with the Companies (Meeting of Board and its Power), Rules 2014 provides that certain decisions to be taken by the Board of Directors in its meeting only and not by way of Circulation.
