6C. Conversion of company limited by shares into company limited by guarantee.
Where a public company limited by shares carrying on insurance business has passed a special resolution for converting itself into a public company limited by guarantee, it may apply to the Central Government with a scheme for putting the special resolution into effect, including any provision for the alteration of the memorandum or articles of association in so for as it may be necessary for this purpose.
If the Central Government, after giving such notice to any person concerned as it thinks fit, is satisfied--
that the scheme makes suitable provision with respect to the repayment, conversion or liquidation of the paid- up capital of the company,
that the consent of the creditors to the conversion of the company limited by shares into a company limited by guarantee has been obtained, or that suitable provisions have been made for discharging, determining or securing the debts or claims of such creditors, and
that the scheme is otherwise reasonable, it may sanction the scheme and thereupon the scheme shall become binding on the company and on all the persons concerned.
Against the decision of the Central Government sanctioning a scheme under sub- section (2), any person aggrieved thereby may, within ninety days of the date of the order sanctioning the scheme, prefer an appeal to the High Court within whose jurisdiction the registered office of the insurer is situate.
The decision of the High Court where an appeal has been preferred to it under sub- section (3) or of the Central Government where no such appeal has been preferred, shall be final and binding on all the persons concerned.
Where a scheme has been sanctioned under this section, the company shall file with the Registrar of Companies a certified copy of the
scheme as sanctioned, and thereupon the provisions of the Indian Companies Act, 1913 (7 of 1913 ), relating to companies limited by guarantee shall become applicable to the company.]
