As per the Companies Act, what is the quorum for a meeting of the shareholders?
A quorum for a meeting of the members of a company in accordance with Section 174 of the Companies Act, 1956, is a minimum of five members for a public company (other than a public company which has become such by virtue of Section 43A of the Companies Act, 1956, i.e. a 'deemed public company').
This number may be altered by an amendment to the Articles of Association of the company. In the case of an ordinary private limited company, the quorum is two members (which is also the minimum number of members a private company must have).
