Please find the relevant provision below

(1) A Company Secretary in practice shall not engage in any business or occupation other than the profession of Company Secretary unless it is permitted by a general or specific resolution of the Council.
Provided that a Company Secretary in practice who at the commencement of the Act was engaged in any business or occupation other than the profession of Company Secretary may continue to engage himself in such business or occupation for a period of six months from the commencement of these regulations.
(2) Without prejudice to the discretion vested in the Council in this behalf, a Company Secretary in practice may act as a secretary, trustee, executor, administrator, arbitrator, receiver, appraiser, valuer, internal auditor, management auditor, management consultant or as a representative on financial matters including taxation and may take up an appointment that may be made by the Central or any State Government, Court of Law, Labour Tribunals, or any other statutory authority.
