Served a legal notice for switch to competitor company

I had been a part of a company in Bengaluru. All my life all I know is teaching on online platform keeping the point in mind to positively contribute on youtube to help provide free education to all.

My original agreement was to serve one month notice or surrender salary for it. They just kept making false promises by holding my raise and not working on it. My financial requirements and medical bills eventually mounted up higher than what they were paying me so I quit.

I put it on mail that I am willingly resigning and due to circumstances I could only serve one week of notice. I resigned on 15th but worked till the last week of that month and didn't take my salary for it.

Now they serve me a notice telling that I absconded even though I resigned and they replied saying my services with that company is terminated.

Non compete is something that cannot be enforced is what I heard. Section 27 or so. See, unless I move to a competitor and teach and stay in education, I will not be able to earn bread and butter. Its like slave labour saying I am not supposed to use MY SKILL later on.

The monitory impact from me teaching on YouTube for the companies does not lose them or make them money. Yet they want 10L in damages.

I find it absolutely meaningless with their goal to get me fired from the new organization just because I am really good at my job of teaching people for FREE.

Lawyers are the first guard of justice. Please help me with some advice here. In a tight spot financially and of course good chance I will be asked to resign from the current company due to legal headache.

Resignation from the post of company secretary

The respected experts
One of my friend joined in a company as a Company Secretary . As per companies act,2013, for appointment as a CS the incumbent have to file DIR-12 to Ministry of Corporate Affairs(MCA). So she filed DIR-12.
She resigned from that Company on 11th November,2020. Board accept her resignation. But still today the company has not filed DIR-12(for resignation of CS).
In spite of repeated reminder the company take no heed on that issue. They are just saying that only after finding a suitable candidate they will file DIR-12 to MC for resignation..
My query is what legal steps she will take against the Company?

On which technical legal point we can match connection from old registration firm with new registration firm

Treatment of npa where a loan is covered under cgtsme-reg.

Dear Sir,
Greetings. Mine is a Proprietary Company. I have availed a Term Loan of Rs. 20L & a CC of Rs. 20 L from a nationalised bank in the month of August 2018 & the entire loan is covered under CGTSME which is still in force & the premium is being paid by us for the same.
I have been running a restaurant. My business is now shut since beginning of Covid -19 from April 2020 .

Prior to this, I had taken 2 similar loans , for a period of 5 years, which were prepaid much before time

I had been servicing this loan till February 2019 not allowing it to slip to NPA. Even now the loan is still not declared as NPA since the bank has given me a moratorium of 6 months from October 20th, 2020 onwards. I am unable to continue the business since the same is not viable any more.
Under the circumstance, the bank may have to declare me an NPA . When the loan is covered under CGTSME,
1) Can the bank recover the same from me even though there has been a genuine business loss?
2) Can the bank lay claim on any assets possessed by me but not procured from these funds availed from it?

Please note that there is no collateral given by me to the bank for the abovementioned loan.

Warm regards,
