What are the terms and conditions in the partnership deed for retirement, and or removal of a partner? In the absence of terms and conditions, the querry cannot be resolved in abstract form. 



Relevant provisions contained in the Partnership Act, 1932, relating to retirement of partner and expulsion of a partner are as under:


32. Retirement of a partner.—(1) A partner may retire—

(a) with a consent of all the other partners,

(b) in accordance with an express agreement by the partners, or

(c) where the partnership is at will, by giving notice in writing to all the other partners of his intention to retire.



33. Expulsion of a partner.—(1) A partner may not be expelled from a firm by any majority of the partners, save in the exercise in good faith of powers conferred by contract between the partners.


One cannot provide the correct answer to your query unless the relevant contents of the Partnership Deed for your partnership firm are seen. Therefore, please provide the relevant details mentioned in your partnership deed relating to retirement or expulsion of a partner, before your query could be answered properly.
