Draft Board-Resolution-Appointment-First-Auditor

As per section 139(6) the first auditor of the company shall be appointed by the Board within 30 days of Incorporation. In case of Board’s failure, an EGM shall be called within 90 days to appoint the first auditor. The law is silent regarding from when this time limit of 90 days be reckoned, it is better to take a stricter view and interpret that the 90 days limit starts from Incorporation rather than expiry of 30 days (i.e. failure of Board) from it.
