Established in 1927, FICCI is the largest and oldest apex business organisation in India. FICCI has contributed to this historical process by encouraging debate, articulating the private sector’s views and influencing policy.
A non-government, not-for-profit organisation, FICCI is the voice of India’s business and industry.
ABOUT THE EVENT
The enactment of the Companies Act, 2013 is a key event for the Indian corporate sector. The Companies Act, 2013, which replaces more than half a century old law, is a reform oriented, governance focussed and forward looking legislation.
While the Act has introduced several new requirements, companies were not provided sufficient time to prepare. Majority sections and related rules were notified during the last week of March 2014 and have an applicability date of April 1, 2014. Moreover, a considerable number of interpretative issues and concerns continue to arise from implementation of the new Act and the Rules and the transition process will not be easy.
In order to smoothen the transition process and to enlighten various stakeholders towards the new law, FICCI is organizing a Classroom Session on key provisions of Companies Act, 2013 at FICCI, Federation House, Delhi.
