    What is Appointment of Director?


    The appointment of a director is the process of adding a new member to the board of directors of a company. The board of directors is responsible for overseeing the management and direction of the company, making strategic decisions, and ensuring that the company is run in accordance with its mission, vision, and values.

    The appointment of a director is typically done by the existing members of the board of directors, who will vote on whether or not to appoint the new director. In some cases, shareholders of the company may also be involved in the appointment process, depending on the company's bylaws and corporate governance structure.


    Types of Directors


    The Companies Act, 2013 recognizes different types of directors, including:

    Executive Directors

    An executive director is a full-time employee of the company, actively involved in the company's day-to-day operations and management. They hold greater responsibility compared to non-executive directors.

    They often hold specific executive roles, such as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chief Financial Officer (CFO), or Chief Operating Officer (COO).

    Non-Executive Directors

    Unlike executive directors, they do not participate in the company’s day-to-day operations or management. They provide independent oversight to the company’s board and its management.


    Managing Director (MD)

    This is a director who has substantial powers of management. The appointment, powers, and responsibilities of a Managing Director are usually specified in the Articles of Association or by a resolution of the Board of Directors.

    Whole-time Director (WTD)

    Similar to a Managing Director, a Whole-time Director is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company. The appointment and terms of service are usually mentioned in the Articles or through a Board resolution.

    Independent Director

    Independent Directors are appointed to provide unbiased and impartial advice to the Board. They should meet specific eligibility criteria and are appointed for a fixed term.

    Additional Director

    An Additional Director is appointed by the Board between two annual general meetings. Such an appointment requires the approval of the shareholders at the next general meeting.

    Nominee Director

    Nominee Directors are appointed by certain stakeholders, such as financial institutions or venture capitalists, to represent their interests on the Board.


    Appointment in General Meeting

    To appoint a director, the company is required to pass a resolution in a general meeting. The company may pass a resolution to appoint a director in an Annual General Meeting (AGM). If the company decides to appoint a director in the middle of the year, it may appoint a director by passing a resolution in an EGM (Extraordinary General Meeting).

    In such a case, a company must conduct a board meeting to pass a resolution for conducting an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM). The company must pass a resolution for appointing a new director. The company should file the resolution for the appointment of the director in Form MGT-14 with the Registrar of Companies (ROC) within 30 days of passing the resolution.
