A director is a person who the shareholders elect to manage all the affairs of the company. It is mandatory to provide the names of the first directors in the Articles of Association of the Company. Every time the appointment of directors is done by the members of the company in the general meeting, excluding the first directors. An additional director can be appointed for the company, if required, in a meeting other than the General Meeting.

Minimum number of Directors as per section 149(1)(a):

  • 3 in case of a Public Limited Company
  • 2 in case of a Private Limited Company
