FAQ on Company Law:

Query :  One of our client companies is a section 8 company, and its AGM is scheduled to be conducted in September, and company has sent notice of AGM with proxy form. A member of the company has appointed another as proxy to present in AGM on his behalf and such person is not a member of the section 8 company. Whether such person can be appointed as proxy or membership is precondition to be eligible to be proxy ?

Answer : As per SS-2, a member of section 8 company may appoint proxy on his behalf to another person if such person is also a member of the section 8 company, no other person can be appointed as proxy if such person is also not a member.

Therefore, only a member of the section 8 company may be appointed as proxy for another member.

Here, in this case, member of the company cannot appoint such person.
