The Companies Act, 1956 provides for dissolution of companies either by winding up or through striking off names of defunct companies from the register of companies. A company, which has been dissolved under the Act, ceases to exist and as such is not required to comply with the provisions of the Act.
Companies that are found to be not in compliance with the provisions of the Companies Act 1956 are proceeded against under the Act. They are not mandatorily required to wind up or declare closure.
