Share on

As per the provisions of Schedule XIII (sixth proviso to Para (C) of Section II of Part II) of the Companies Act, 1956 (earlier Act) read with circular number 14/11/2012-CL-VII dated 16th August, 2012, listed companies and their subsidiaries were allowed to pay remuneration, without approval of Central Government, in excess of limits specified in para II Para (C) of such Schedule if the managerial person met the conditions specified therein.

Since similar provisions are not available in the Schedule V of the Companies Act, 2013, there is a need for a clarification that a managerial person appointed in accordance with such provision of Schedule XIII of Earlier Act may receive relevant remuneration for the period as approved by the company in accordance with such provisions of Earlier Act.

Accordingly MCA vide general circular no 07/2015 dated 10th April 2015, has clarified that a managerial person referred to in para 1 above may continue to receive remuneration for his remaining term in accordance with terms and conditions approved by company as per relevant provisions of Schedule XIII of earlier Act even if the part of his/her tenure falls after 1st April, 2014.
