As a company’s foundation rests on its directors, you need a competent director to build it, or an insufficient director to break it. Therefore, it is imperative that shareholders are vigilant when it comes to appointing directors. Company directors can be removed before the end of their tenure period under Section 169 of the Companies Act, 2013. Moreover, the removal of director becomes ineffective if the Central Government appoints a director.
