    • Dear Sir

      As per Rule 8 & 8A of the Companies (Appointment and Remuneration of Managerial Personnel) Rules 2014:

      Every Company having a paid up share capital of  ten crore rupees or more shall have a whole -time company secretary.

      Specifically no exemption has been granted to Section 8 Companies to comply the Rule 8 & 8A of the Companies Act 2013.

      Therefore Section 8 Companies are required to appoint whole time Company Secretary.

      In addition to above comment of Arun, I would like to add Rule 8 and Rule8A of Companies( appointment and remuneration of managerial personnal) rules 2014, i.e

      8. Appointment of Key Managerial Personnel.

      Every listed company and every other public company having a paid-up share capital of ten crore rupees or more shall have whole-time key managerial personnel.

      8A. Appointment of Company Secretaries in companies not covered under rule 8.—

      Every private company which has a paid up share capital of ten crore rupees or more shall have a whole -time company secretary.

    • Dear Folks,

      Please go through the MCA Notification or Exemption given in the year 2015 for section-8 Company.

      As per exemption notification dated 05th June, 2015, the definition of Company Secretary in section 2(24) of the Companies Act, 2013 is not applicable on Section 8 Companies.

      Therefore No any CS required mandatorily to be appointed in Section-8 (NGO)
