Removal of Director

A director can be added or removed from the company at any moment. A director can be removed for several reasons, and different methods depend on the cause. Regardless, TaxDraw can assist you in replacing a director from your company and make the procedure simple for you.

Reasons for a Director's Removal

Any of the following causes can lead to a director's removal:

• If they are found guilty of any of the disqualifications listed in the Companies Act.

• If they miss more than a year's worth of board meetings.

• If they violate Section 184 of the Companies Act by entering into contracts or agreements.

• If a law rules that they are ineligible,

• If they are declared guilty of any crime and sentenced to at least six months in prison by a court,

• If they have not followed the rules and processes outlined in the Companies Act of 2013, they will be fined.

• If they have freely resigned from their position.

How to remove a Director

A director can be removed from a company in one of three ways:

Method 1

When the Director Offer their Resignation

The steps to take in this case are as follows:

Step 1

Call a board meeting with at least seven days' notice.

Step 2

The board members must take notes of the resignation during the meeting.

Step 3

They must then pass a resolution to that effect in a specific format.

Step 4

Finally, the resigning director must file Form DIR-11 in his capacity.

Step 5

The company must submit Form DIR-12, along with the resignation letter and the board resolution, to the registrar of companies (ROC).

Step 6

Once all of the documents have been completed and the processes for removing the director have been completed, the director's name will be deleted from the company's master data on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) website.

Method 2

For a period of 12 months, a director is not present at board meetings.

Step 1

A director is regarded to have abandoned their position if they fail to attend all board of director’s meetings for a period of twelve months, with or without asking leave of absence from the board.

Step 2

Fill and submit a DIR-12 form.

Step 3

After the processes are completed, the name of the concerned director will be deleted from the Ministry of Corporate Affairs database (MCA).

Method 3

Shareholders decided to remove a director

Step 1

All shareholders are notified of an upcoming board meeting held within seven days of the issue date.

Step 2

A resolution is passed calling for a general meeting and then the removal of the director, subject to shareholder approval on the meeting day.

Step 3

Following a 21-day notice, the second meeting of shareholders is held to vote on the resolution passed previously, and the director whom the shareholders are removing is allowed to speak about their dismissal.

Step 4

The shareholders must file Form DIR-12, the board resolution's attachments, and an ordinary solution.

Non-filing of Form DIR-12 has the following consequences.

The DIR-12 must be filed within 30 days of the resignation date. The following penalties will be imposed if the company fails to do so:

• After 30 days and within 60 days, the government fees are doubled.

• After 60 days, you must pay four times the government costs within 90 days.

• If it lasts longer than 90 days, you'll have to pay ten times the government fees.

• If it exceeds 180 days, you will be charged 12 times the government fees and arrested for the compounding offense.
