ICSI relaxes applicability of Secretarial Standards on Meetings

The Institute of  Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) clarifies that any relaxation granted by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (“MCA”) due to Covid-19 outbreak from the compliance of provisions of Board and General Meetings under the Companies Act, 2013 (“Act”) will automatically and consequentially apply to Secretarial Standards as the case may be and the relaxed provisions of the Act will prevail to the extent applicable in terms of enforceability. In this regard, few provisions of the Secretarial Standards on General Meetings (“SS-2”) shall stand relaxed and should be construed in the light of the relaxations already granted by the MCA to facilitate compliance and continue to promote good corporate governance.

Further in context of COVID-19 situation, ICSI has also provided a guidance on certain provisions of SS-2, which is voluntary in nature and is in line with the relaxations given by the MCA and will be applicable only for the period of relaxation so extended by the MCA.

The complete clarification/Guidance issued by ICSI is attached herewith:

    To the owner, Keep up the good work!

  2. I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout
    of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  3. I have been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or blog posts on this sort of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this site. Reading this info So i?m happy to convey that I have a very good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed. I most certainly will make certain to do not forget this website and give it a look regularly.
