    • In case a director of a private company dies, then the provision for filling the casual vacancy is laid down in Section 152(2) of the Companies Act, 2013. It states that unless expressly provided under the Act, every director of the private company shall be appointed by the company in the general meeting. Therefore the casual vacancy can only be filled up through appointment in a general meeting.

      This also means that the directors are barred from filling up the casual vacancy by themselves
