  1. Chitra says:

    Due to unavailability of some Directors the Disclosure was taken in the subsequent meeting but not in the first Board meeting. will this action amount to non- Compliance because as per section 184, the company has to take note in every First Board meeting?
    will that be non compliance all together

  2. Priyanka says:

    Does the director need to give MBP-1 within 30days from his appointment/resignation/re-appt in other company?

  3. rajesh says:

    IS IT necessary to maintain a register showing Directors Interest in other companies ( as shown in form MBP1)

  4. Levita High says:

    Is form MBP 1 – Notice of Interest filed with the ROC or is it just used to disclosed and noted in the minutes of the BOD??

  5. Susheela says:

    I have failed to take the interest of the board of directors at the first meeting and would like to consider it at the second meeting. Can anybody tell me the consequences. Is there any way out

  6. ankit says:

  11. Rajkishore says:

    I do not agree with the views expressed on this subject. It is a complete misinterpretation of the sections of the Act. Section 184 does not specify that the Board has to pass a resolution taking note of the disclosure. A mere entry in the minutes that the Board took note of the disclosure would suffice. Since there is no resolution required to be passed, Form MGT 14 need not be filed.

  12. Arun Kumae Maitra says:


  13. DEEPAK says:

    Thanks But pl clarify if a Director has no Interest within Meaning of Section 184, still, he has to file Form MBP 1 and also File MGT 14  alongwith Board Resolution ?

  14. DEEPAK says:

    (1) Whether this is applicable where the company has entered in to any contract with any concern in which director is interested or that is not relevant? 

    2.       If directors are not interested in any other concern, whether such notice is required to be given by each director? How this can be given in such cases because the form has not made any provision for the same.

  16. Aditya Maheshwari says:


    I agree to the earlier opinion of Sri. Patodia Ji that MBP-1 is not mandatory to file. I am not able to find the exact section or rule wherein MBP-1 filing to registrar is mandated.

    Can anyone help me in this respect please quoting the section and relevant portion of the rule.

    Thanks & regards.

  17. pooja says:

    Whether MBP submitted along with MGT 14?

  18. Nitish Vyas says:

    Do we need to file MBP-1 with MGT 14 for every Board meeting held during this year or it is applicable only for the first board meeting?

    • Panna Lal Patodia says:

      Whenever there is a change in the interest / concern of a director in a body corporate, firm etc., the director need to submit form MBP-1. Form MGT 14 should be filed within 30 days of the board meeting that pass board resolution taking note of such disclosure.

  19. CA Narendra says:

    When filing GNL-2 form for Return of deposits, which has to file on or before 30/06/2014.

    So Is it become necessary to file mgt 14 before filing GNL 2 ????

  20. Panna Lal Patodia says:

    I regret for my earlier comment. The resolution taking note of disclosure of interest / concern has to filed with ROC.

  21. Panna Lal Patodia says:

    Every director has to disclose in form MBP 1 in first meeting, subsequently in first board meeting of financial year or whenever there is any change in disclosure.

    All such notices shall be kept at the registered office and such notices shall be preserved for a period of eight years from the end of the financial year to which it relates and shall be kept in the custody of the company secretary of the company or any other person authorised by the Board for the purpose.

    There is no need to file the concerned resolution with ROC in form MGT-14.

  22. Onkar says:

    There is no such form known as MBP 14. Its MGT 14.
