Solution

  1. Yes. The shareholders are liable to pay ₹ 20 for the shares held by them. This is because it is the responsibility of every shareholder to pay the call money as demanded by the company.
  2. The company has to send the call letter to shareholders for the payment of call money. This letter is sent by ordinary post.
  3. If a shareholder fails to pay the money within the specified time, then the company sends a warning letter and after that, the company can forfeit (cancel) the shares of the shareholders.
