Directors of a company are professional people who are hired by a corporate body to perform the affairs of the company. The management of company affairs is done by a director or directors. The director of a company is responsible for determining and implementing policies that work as decision-making. The director of a company calls for a board meeting that includes an annual meeting of the company’s shareholders. They also perform tasks such as filing statutory documents with the Corporate Affairs body under the government of India or their agencies, maintaining records of the company activities, contracts with suppliers, lenders, and any other dealings of the company.

Directors sometimes also act as trustees or the company’s managing partner, but they are neither in the actual sense of the word. They can perform such tasks only when the situation arises so. Directors of a company take care of the company’s capital dealings as a trustee but they are not the trustees of the company, they only control the capital as a trust. The powers conferred on the directors of a company must be performed for the benefit of the company as a whole.

Following are some of the powers and duties of the directors:
  • 1. Directors can make calls in place of the company.
