Indian Structure

In India, a Company can be incorporated under the Companies Act, 2013, as a private Company, a public Company or a one person Company. Each of these Companies may be incorporated as a Company Limited by Shares, a Company Limited by Guarantee or an Unlimited Company. The organizational structures that must exist for these Companies are as follows:

  1. A Board of Directors only.
  2. A Board of Directors and one or more of an Audit Committee, a Nomination & Remuneration Committee, a Stakeholders Relationship Committee, and/or a Risk Management Committee.

The Committees are primarily to be constituted by Listed Companies and/or by certain unlisted Public Companies meeting specified thresholds.

Please see, respectively, “Board of Directors”, “Audit Committee”, “Nomination & Remuneration Committee”, “Stakeholders Relationship Committee” and “Risk Management Committee” in the left side menu for a more in-depth description of each structure, including how to change the respective board members.
