A company is an association of several persons. Decisions are made according to the view of the majority. Various matters have to be discussed and decided upon. These discussions take place at the various meetings which take place between members and between the directors. Needless to say, the importance of meetings cannot be under-emphasised in case of companies. The Companies Act, 1956 contains several provisions regarding meetings. These provisions have to be understood and followed.
For a meeting, there must be at least 2 persons attending the meeting. One member cannot constitute a company meeting even if he holds proxies for other members.
