Mumbai: Dish TV India has applied to the Registrar of Companies, Mumbai seeking a further extension of time to convene their 33rd annual general meeting (AGM) from 30 November to 31 December.

This is the second time the company has deferred its AGM which was originally scheduled to be held on 28 September. The company sought the extension in view of the issues arising out of the pendency of an application filed by Yes Bank before the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), Mumbai bench.

Yes Bank had sought NCLT’s direction to the company to call for an extraordinary general meeting (EGM) to pass a resolution for the reconstitution of the company’s board.

On 6 September, Yes Bank had sent a requisition notice to Dish TV India’s board to convene a special meeting of the shareholders seeking the removal of its board of directors including managing director Jawaher Lal Goel and independent directors Dr Rashmi Aggarwal, Bhagwan Das Narang, Shankar Agarwal, and Ashok Mathai Kurien.

The bank proposed the appointment of a new board including Akash Suri, Sanjay Nambiar, Vijay Bhatt, Haripriya Padmanabhan, Girish Paranjape, Narayan Vasudeo Prabhutendulkar, and Arvind Nachaya Mapangada.

Yes Bank holds a 25.63 per cent stake in the company. It stated that it sought the removal of the present board of directors on the grounds that the board approved a Rs 1000 crore rights issue process despite objections raised by the bank, solely to dilute the shareholding of the bank.

Dish TV India board rejected the EGM notice by Yes Bank stating that a resolution to reconstitute the board can only be placed post receipt of approval from the ministry of information and broadcasting and other requisite approvals for appointment of new directors, within statutory guidelines.
