Introduction to Companies Act 2013

The 1956 Act has been in need of a substantial revamp for quite some time now, to make it more contemporary and relevant to corporates, regulators, and other stakeholders in India. While several unsuccessful attempts have been made in the past to revise the existing 1956 Act, there have been quite a few changes in the administrative portion of the 1956 Act.

The most recent attempt to revise the 1956 Act was the Companies Bill, 2009 which was introduced in the Lok Sabha, one of the two Houses of Parliament of India, on 3 August 2009. This Companies Bill, 2009 was referred to the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance, which submitted its report on 31 August 2010 and was withdrawn after the introduction of the Companies Bill, 2011.

The Companies Bill, 2011 was also considered by the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance which submitted its report on 26 June 2012. Subsequently, the Bill was considered and approved by the Lok Sabha on 18 December 2012 as the Companies Bill, 2012 (the Bill). The Bill was then considered and approved by the Rajya Sabha too on 8 August 2013. It received the President’s assent on 29 August 2013 and has now become the Companies Act, 2013.

Companies Act 2013 is an Act of the Parliament of India which regulates the incorporation of a company, responsibilities of a company, directors, and dissolution of a company. The 2013 Act is divided into 29 chapters containing 470 sections as against 658 Sections in the Companies Act, 1956 and has 7 schedules.

The Act came into force on 12 September 2013 with a few changes earlier private companies’ maximum number of members was 50 and now it will be 200. A new term of “one person company” is included in this act that will be a private company and with only 98 provisions of the Act notified. On 27 February 2014, the MCA stated that Section 135 of the Act which deals with corporate social responsibility will come into effect from 1 April 2014.

On 26 March 2014, the MCA stated that another 183 sections will be notified from 1 April 2014. The Ministry of Company Affairs thereafter proposed a draft notification for exempting private companies s from the ambit of various sections under the companies act.

Purpose/Objective of the Act

The Act broadly seeks to achieve the following objectives:

  • a) To promote the development of the economy by encouraging entrepreneurship and enterprise efficiency and creating flexibility and simplicity in the formation and maintenance of companies;

  • c) To recognize various new concepts and procedures facilitating ease of doing business while protecting the interests of all the stakeholders;
