Cessation of a Director of the company can happen in two situations, either by the company i.e Removal of Director or voluntary by the Director i.e. Resignation by the Director. Resignation of a director voluntarily can take place when the director presents a wish to resign for whatsoever reasons. On the other hand, a director can also be removed involuntarily by the company before the end of his/her tenure. Form DIR 12 is required to be filed within 30 days of cessation with an attachment of resolution passed for removal and resignation of the director.

On the receipt of the resignation letter from any director of the Company, the Company shall acknowledge the same and be liable to file Form DIR-12 for intimation of such resignation to the ROC.

The company has the authority to remove a director by passing an ordinary resolution provided the director was not appointed by the Tribunal or the Central Government. However, the director can challenge the removal, and it could lead to legal complications. At Provenience, we offer plans that may suit different company needs. We take care of all the compliance and legal procedures so that there are no complications later.


    • The Company must have at least two Directors in Private Limited, three directors in Public Company and one Director in OPC after resignation of the Director.
    • The Resigning Director must give notice of his resignation to the Company as per provisions of the Companies Act.
