The objective of Companies Act, 2013 to a large extent is to ensure good corporate governance by enhancing transparency and accountability. Therefore, it is now mandatory to circulate draft minutes (by hand, post or electronically) to all directors for their comments within fifteen days from conclusion of the meeting.Minutes of the Board Meeting are a tangible record of the meeting for its participants and a source of information for members who were unable to attend. The minutes of a board meeting try to capture the essence of the meeting by including details such as decisions made (motions made, votes etc.), next steps planned and identification and tracking of action items. In some cases, meeting minutes can also act as a reference point. The minutes should be entered in the minute book within thirty days of the meeting and no alteration is allowed thereafter
