With reference to board meetings of a company, answer the following :
What course of action should be taken if a quorum is not present for these meetings?
If the quorum is not present within half an hour of the appointed time, then the meeting shall be adjourned to the same day next week at the same time and place or such other time and place as the Board may determine.
However, if the general meeting is called by revolutionists under section 100 (erstwhile section 169) then in case the quorum is not present within half an hour as above, then the meeting will stand canceled.
For the adjourned meeting, however, the company will have to give fresh notice of at least 3 days either by sending individual notices to the shareholders or by publishing an advertisement in newspapers in English and in vernacular language in the district where the registered office of the company is situated. If at the adjourned meeting also quorum is not present within half an hour of the appointed time then whatever quorum is present will constitute a proper quorum.
