Following this, several communications were received in the Ministry of Corporate Affairs from chamber of commerce and professional institutes etc. drawing attention to certain practical difficulties concerning these provisions or seeking clarifications about them. There was also an interactive session on such issues with the stakeholders on 21st June 2014. Pursuant to this Government have issued suitable circulars, statutory orders and amendments in the rules to provide transitional time, remove doubts or practical difficulties. The Ministry is carrying out Inter-Ministerial consultations to address issues that may require amendment in the Act. There is no such proposal pending to review the role of directors and responsibility for the decision taken by the company.
