Director and share-holder - who is in charge of the company?


I want to register a pvt ltd company, but since there is a requirement that there should be minimum 2 directors - i am forced to bring in a dis-interested person as a director just to satisfy this requirement.

For all practical purposes i alone will have to run the company

How does equity/share-holding work then? Can i clearly specify(how) that i own 100% equity of the company?

Please advice.Thanks

Section 2 (13) of the Companies Act, defines Director as any person, occupying the position of a Director, by whatever name called. At times Articles of Association may provide guidelines for appointing a Director but generally it is shareholders who decide that who will be able to run the business on their behalf successfully.

Dear sir, 

With the passing of Company act 2013, now a company can be made by an individual person, So you should no need to force any person to become a director of your company, you only can run your business perfectly with the name of one person company,

You are probably referring to OPC - One Person Company.

I wonder if people wud be comfortable doing business with a OPC.. most don't seem to know abt it.
