Editor-in-Chief:   Vaneeta Patnaik,  Asst. Professor of Law, WBNUJS


The new Companies Act 2013 replaced old Companies Act, 1956. The new Act partially made effective w.e.f. 12th September, 2013 makes comprehensive provisions to govern all listed and unlisted companies in the country. So far the Ministry of Corporate Affairs has notified and made effective 283 sections, out of total 470 sections. The MCA has also issued final rules relating to 19 chapters, covering most of the notified sections. Schedule II (regarding depreciation) has also been amended. SEBI, vide Circular dated 17 April 2014, amended Clauses 35B and 49 of the Listing Agreement. Revised Clause 49 (RC 49) among other matters deals with aspects such as related party transactions, independent directors, Audit Committee and vigil mechanism. Purpose of RC49 is to align the requirements of the listing agreement with the 2013 Act.

Replacing the 58-year-old legislation, the new law has stricter norms for independent directors, auditors, key appointments and standards of conduct. The sections notified include some key provisions related to public and private placement, allotment of securities, resolutions requiring special notice, powers to the Serious Fraud Investigation Office, one-person company, related-party transaction, audit and auditors, qualification of directors, board and its powers and revival and rehabilitation of sick companies, among others.

In recognition of the staggering impact of the new Companies Act on trade and commerce in India, we welcome submissions from academicians, practitioners, students, researchers and experts from within the legal community on different aspects of the new Companies Act, 2013 for an edited book on the subject. This book to be published by a reputed publisher attempts to bring out the significant changes and its impact as introduced by the 2013 Act compared to the 1956 Act. We have a strong preference for articles that assert and defend a well-reasoned position.
