Understanding New Director Appointment

A company is a legal person that doesn’t hold any existence and requires natural persons to manage day to day activities. A Director is an entrusted individual elected by the shareholders to direct a company regarding management of affairs and is also enlisted in the Memorandum of Association (MoA) and Articles of Association (AoA) of a company.

The AoA under Section 260 and Section 284 of Companies Act, 1956 empowers Board of Directors to add a new Director with due consent of proposed Director as well as shareholders of the company. It is essential that the proposed Director must be eligible for the position as per the clauses specified in the AoA.

The new Directors are obliged to submit consent declaring their will on acting as a Director of the company. Also, the newly appointed Director needs to acquire a Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) and Director Identification Number (DIN) from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) for trouble free operation.

Types of Directors

Managing Director

Executive Director

Additional Director

Ordinary Directors

Alternate Directors

Managing Director

The AoA entitles a Managing Director with significant powers of management to control the critical affairs of a company

Additional Director

Depending on the provision of AoA, Board of Directors appoint Additional Director who can operate between two annual general meetings only.

Executive Director

Executive Directors are committed for full time executives of a company who actively manage major company’s affairs.

Ordinary Directors

Participation of an Ordinary Director is restricted to attend only the Board Meetings as well as for the matters presented to the Board of Directors.

Alternate Directors

Usually an Alternate Director is appointed by Board of Directors for Foreign collaborators of a company. In absence of Original Director, an Alternate Director can act as an Original Director for at least three months.
