Re: Minor as Director

 Minor is not covered by any express disqualification but as u are aware, he is surely not competent to contract.  So he cant file his consent to act as Director with RoC.

However this is applicable for Ltd and Pvt Company which is subsidiary of Ltd Company.

So there is nothing which prohibits a minor from acquiring directorship in Pvt Company. 

However, from practical point of view he can b an ornamental director only as he can not b a prty to any transaction.

He can though vote at Board Meetings.

a MINOR by definition underr the LAW is not competent to exercise the faculties of mind in a rational or mature manner. Hence and automatically a MINOR is barred by Common Law from being inducted as a member of the Board of Directors of a Company-IRRESPECTIVE OF THE NATURE AND TYPE OF cOMPANY.That is the reason why even the Companies Act,1956 has not bothered to even define or make a special/specific mention of this query's poser.

No a minor canot be director. As under Contract he is barred from entering into a contract. Second, for becoming a director, DIN is necessary and DIN is not alltted to any any minor.
