About the book:


Companies follow diverse secretarial practices and, therefore, there is a need to integrate, harmonise and standardize such practices so as to promote uniformity and consistency.


The Institute of Company Secretaries of India, acknowledging this need has issued ten Secretarial Standards on topics namely


ü        Meetings of the Board of Directors (SS-1)

ü        General Meetings (SS-2)

ü        Dividend (SS-3)

ü        Registers and Records (SS-4)

ü        Minutes (SS-5)

ü        Transmission of Shares and Debentures (SS-6)

ü        Passing Resolutions by Circulation (SS-7)

ü        Affixing of Common Seal (SS-8)

ü        Forfeiture of Shares (SS-9)

ü        Board's Report (SS-10)



All these ten Secretarial Standards have been compiled for easy reference in a publication titled “Secretarial Standards – A Compendium”.


Compilation of Secretarial Standards by the corporate sector will lead to good corporate governance practices, making them comparable with best practices in the world.
