Resign from Directorship

A company director is a trusted entity by the shareholders for managing the affairs of the company as per MOA and AOA. There can be multiple reasons for the resignation of a Company Director. He/she can be terminated by Shareholders or the Board of Directors. In some cases, by filing an intimation of change of Director with the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, a director can be removed or may resign.

The termination process varies for the resignation and removal of the Director. The Company Director must give written notice or a resignation must be submitted to the Shareholders or the Board. Within 30 days from resignation or termination, the Board is obliged to file the necessary filings with MCA.
