E-Voting in India
What is e-Voting?
e-Voting is voting through an electronic system where members/shareholders can vote on resolutions of companies requiring members/shareholders consent.
The need for e-Voting arises when a company wishes to pass resolutions by Postal Ballot/AGM/EGM which requires shareholders approvals at shareholders’ meetings.
The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has authorised NSDL and CDSL for setting up an electronic platform to enable shareholders to cast vote in electronic form using the internet.
