Extraordinary General Meeting - companies act 2013 notes
All general meetings other than annual general meetings are called extraordinary general meetings.
Calling of EGM
By Board on requisition of shareholders
There are various matters in relation to administration of a company’s affairs, which can be transacted only by resolutions of members in a general meeting. It is not always possible or expedient for consideration of such matters to wait until the next annual meeting. Thus, whenever the Board thinks fit or on the requisition of the members, an Extra ordinary general meeting may be called.
