Companies Act 2013
Fresh thinking for a new start
The Companies Act, 2013 (2013 Act) was assented by the President of India on 29 August 2013 and published in the Official Gazette on 30 August 2013. The 2013 Act will set the tone for a more modern legislation which enables growth and greater regulation of the corporate sector in India.
This paper is prepared keeping the provisions of the 2013 Act and does not capture provisions of the Draft Rules as these are subject to change once the feedback of the stakeholders is received by the Indian Ministry of Corporate Affair and incorporated in the final Rules that may be issued in future.
