Nishith Desai Associates is delighted to invite you to a round table discussion on The Companies Bill, 2012 ("Bill") Impact and Analysis on Tuesday, February 12, 2013, 11:00 am (IST).
Though, the Bill is yet to be approved by the Rajya Sabha, the Upper House of the Indian Parliament, however, if accepted in its current form, the Bill is set to overhaul the current statutory framework governing companies in India.
We shall in the round table discuss some of the key changes proposed under the Bill from the current
(Indian) Companies Act, 1956 for instance, in the definitions section, and in the directors, shareholders and capital restructuring related provisions etc.
We shall also discuss some of the new concepts being introduced under the Bill, for example, one-person company, small company, class action suits etc. In addition, we will also briefly touch upon the mechanism and time frame within which the companies would need to comply with the new Bill, once enacted.
