Private limited companies are not required to appoint a company secretary, unless there is a provision in the articles of association. Such a provision is found in private companies registered before April 6th 2008. Nevertheless, a special resolution can be passed by the shareholders or directors to eliminate such a provision. If this provision is not removed from a company's articles, then the company is lawfully required to have a company secretary. Organisations with no such provision are free to designate or eliminate Company Secretaries as per their requirements.
