Under the Company's Act 1956. An additional Director's appointment is for a period of 1 year or till the next AGM or if not held by 30th Sept, when he will automatically retire due to the efflux of time, even if a Form 32 resigning from the Company is not carried out. - This is my reading of the law (please correct me if i am wrong)
In a pecular legal matter, It is required to prove that someone was not a director. While the adage that you cannot prove a false holds true, this situation is unique. One can prove that one was a director by perusal of the ROC records either online or by doing a physical search of the records stored. In this case it is required to prove that the person was not a director.
How does one do that?
