  2. 2. Definition of meeting A meeting is a gathering of two or more people that has been convened for the purpose of achieving a common goal through verbal interaction, such as sharing information or reaching agreement. Meetings may occur face to face or virtually, as mediated by communications technology, such as a telephone conference call or a videoconference.
  3. 3. In short….. Meeting is a process to come together with a specific purpose at a particular time……
  4. 4. Types of meeting General meeting Statutory meetings Annual general meetings Extraordinary General meetings
  5. 5. Statutory meeting {sec-165} • Every company limited by share or guarantee and having a share capital has to commence • That’s the first meeting of the shareholder’s of the company • Only once in a lifetime
  6. 6. • Board of directors to forward it at least 21 days before meeting. • Every member to receive the copy. • Notice of meeting to clearly say the word “statutory meeting”. • If the report is forwarded later than 21 days every member entitled to attend the meeting has to agree on the due forwarding process.

  8. 8. Procedure at meeting • List of members • Discussion of matters relating formational aspect • Adjournment
  9. 9. Annual general meeting {SEC 166 & 167} • Organize it within every 15 months with the exception of first meeting to be held in 18 months of the making. • The meeting must be held in each year. • It must not held later than 6 months from the date of balance sheet. • Notify in writing 21 days prior to meeting.
  10. 10. Case law: Sree Meenakshi Mills Co. ltd v. Assistant Registrar of Companies on 8 March, 1938 • The conviction of the company was in my opinion correct. Section 76(1) of the Companies Act requires a general meeting to be held once at least in every year. The argument on behalf of the petitioners is that since the general meeting called on 30th December, 1934, was adjourned to 31st March, 1935, and was held on that date, it follows that general meeting was held in 1934 and in 1935, and the general meeting held on the 28th January, 1936, was within 15 months of 31st March, 1935. This is specious, but unsound. It can be reduced to absurdity in a moment. If it were correct a general meeting held in 1934 could be adjourned to 1935 and again adjourned to 1936 arid so on without limit. But that would obviously not satisfy Section 76. Section 76 demands that there shall be a general meeting held once at least in every year, that is, one meeting per year, and as many meetings as there are years. It does not mean that the same meeting can go on being held once in-each year. The meeting on 31st March, 1935, was not a different meeting from the one which began on 30th December, 1934; it was the same meeting. Section 76 required that in 1935 a separate and distinct meeting should be held. • The conviction of the company is therefore correct and the fine as reduced by the learned Sessions Judge is not excessive. The officers however cannot be said to have been "knowingly parties to the default" in the face of the evidence that they took legal advice and acted accordingly.
  11. 11. Importance of annual general meeting • Consideration of accounts, balance sheet and reports of the board of directors and auditors • Shareholders can take decisions relating to business • Declaration of dividends • Appointment of directors • Appointment and fixed or remuneration of auditors.
  12. 12. Extra-ordinary general meeting {SEC 169} • Statutory and annual meetings are ordinary • This meeting is called to decide upon a serious issue that cannot be delayed of the next annual meeting • Board of directors on their own or on the request of members can call meeting and by the company law board.
  13. 13. Resolutions • Resolutions mean decisions taken at a meeting. A motion, with or without amendments is put to vote at a meeting. Once the motion is passed, it becomes a resolution. A valid resolution can be passed at a properly convened meeting with the required quorum.
