    Resignation of Director

    Generally, appointment of directors ensures that a company has a leading face. They are responsible for the successful functioning of a company and suffer a loss when the company faces a financial crisis. However, there may be unavoidable circumstances due to which someone may want to resign from their designation.

    A director resignation letter is a form of statement that shows the individual’s intent to step down from the position as the director of a company. This letter indicates the reason for leaving the position and mentions the final day. The concerned person usually needs to serve a notice period in order to allow the company to find a replacement.

    The director of the company also needs to send the resignation letter to the company’s board of directors and the Registrar of Companies, RoC.

    Procedure for Resignation of Director & Related Compliance

    Section 168 (1) of Companies Act states that “a director who wants to resign from his office, shall within a period of thirty days from the date of resignation, shall forward to the Registrar a copy of his resignation along with reasons for the resignation in form DIR-11 and the fee as provided in the Companies (Registration Offices and Fees) Rules, 2014.

    There are a few obligations on the part of the director and obligations on the part of the company that each party must fulfill to complete the resignation and removal of the director process. Let’s look at the resignation of the director-online process in brief: 

    Step 1: Submitting Notice: The individual must give notice in writing to the company and the Board of directors, after which the board shall take a note of the cause. The director’s resignation shall take effect after the final serving date is mentioned in the notice.

    Step 2: Providing Information: As part of the resignation of director-online process, our legal team may require a set of specific information from you. Let’s take a look at each through this tabular form one by one:

    ID Proofs

    We may require your name, registered office address, company’s official email id, notice of declaration etc.

    Any company director looking to step down from their position is required to fill out Form DIR-11 and send it to the Registrar of Companies (RoC) within 30 days of resignation along with a copy of a Board Resolution and a Resignation letter.

    The notice of resignation in eForm DIR-11 of Section 168 (1) of the Companies Act, 2013 is a form of intimation sent to the Registrar stating the intention to resign from the said position.

    Yes. A director can resign at anytime from the office by completing the formalities in writing to the company’s Board of Directors. They can send an email as a valid mode of communication as well.

    Well, the applicable fee depends on the nominal share capital of a company. For example, any company with a share capital of less than 1 lakh usually pays around Rs. 300 as ROC Fees, whereas the charges increase by Rs. 100 if your company’s share capital lies between Rs. 1 lakh and Rs. 4,99,999. Plus, some companies have to pay additional fees if they are submitting the resignation after a period of 30 days of giving the resignation notice.

    Upon receiving a director’s resignation, the company’s board organizes a meeting where the board members take note of the resignation and files an application to the RoC in form DIR-12 indicating the same. After updating the registrar, the board may select an alternative director.

    Although the director is discharged of any liabilities and responsibilities after resigning from a company, as per rules laid down by the MCA, a director may be held responsible for the wrongs done during the tenure of that particular director.

    JustStart guarantees you the best affordable package detailed in the resignation of the director by covering:

    • Drafting a resolution for the resignation of a director from the company
    • eForm DIR-11 submission
    • Drafting of a resignation letter
