About The Book

It gives me a great pleasure to present to my readers the first edition of Corporate and Securities Law for B. Com. (Banking and Insurance).

Development of Company Law in India from birth of a company to Companies Act, 2013 as amended, is restricted to essential features of a company, types of companies and procedures for inter-conversions. Coupled with doctrines governing corporates, the reader would get the insight of not only the real nature of companies but also effects on governance of corporates under the application of doctrines, based on the facts and circumstances of each case. All applicable doctrines have been discussed with case law as most of the doctrines are originated from judicial activism. Limited study also includes the extent to which Company Law is applicable to Banking and Insurance sectors, the two important institutions in the development, existence and growth of corporate sector.

Stock Exchanges and Securities as regulated by the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956 and Rules thereto provide for complementary study to corporates in public issues. With law on corporatization and demutualization, contracts in securities, powers and functions of regulatory authorities, namely, stock exchanges in case of public offer of securities with listing agreements and obligations including redressal mechanism, is a comprehensive but a selective study which adds to the knowledge of corporates for compliances before entering the capital market and thereafter. To this, study of powers of Securities and Exchange Board of India (the Board) under the Securities and Exchange Board of India Act, 1992 is a feature of the study in this text.

With corporate scams and investors being duped of their life savings, regulations and guidelines have been issued for investor protection by enactment of Securities and Exchange Board of India (Disclosure and Investor Protection) Guidelines, 2000 and Securities and Exchange Board of India (Issue of Capital and Disclosure Requirements) Regulations, 2018. Not only the investor is educated before plunging in capital market but corporates are guarded from acting against the interest of the investors for otherwise huge liability in the form of penalties and prosecutions is attracted.

And finally, with shares, debentures, mutual funds required to be dematerialized and to be held by the investors in demat form, study of Depositories Act, 1996 cannot be left out.
