The Companies Act of 2013 is a part of Indian corporate law. The Companies Act of 1956 had previously governed the requirements relating to directors. The Companies Act of 2013’s Section 149 discusses the appointment of directors to a business. For public limited businesses to perform their duties, independent directors must be appointed in addition to the directors. Companies would need to provide non-executive directors with certain services before they could be appointed.
According to the Companies Act of 2013, the phrase “Non Executive Directors” has no clear definition. But, Rule 2(k) of the Companies (Specification of Definition Details) Regulations, 2014 defines what an Executive Director is. An executive director is a “whole-time director” who oversees the duties necessary for the operation of the business. This would be in accordance with Companies Act of 2013 Section 2(94).
Under the guidelines of the Companies Act of 2013, the word “executive director” would be included in the definition of a whole-time director. So, a non executive director would be anyone who serves as a director but does not fully fulfill their duties for a corporation. Non-executive directors are typically appointed based on the idea of functional independence.
There is a space for non-executive directors on the Nomination and Remuneration Committee (NRC). Majority of the directors of this committee must be non executive directors. Hence as per the requirements of the company, the independence of non executive directors should not be compromised.
