February, 20th 2015

And whereas, clause (85) of section 2 of the said Act provides for definition of the term "small company";

And whereas, clause (b) of sub-section (11) of section 186 of the said Act provides that the requirements of provisions of section 186 [except sub-section  (1) of the said section[ shall not apply to any acquisition made by a non-banking financial company registered under Chapter IIIB of the Reserve Bank of India Act, 1934 (2 of 1934) and any other company whose principal business is acquisition of securities;

Now, therefore, in exercise of the powers conferred by sub-section (1) of section 470 of theCompanies Act, 2013 (18 of 2013), the Central Government hereby makes the following Order to remove the aforesaid difficulties, namely:-

(a) in section 2, in clause (85), in sub-clause (i), for the word "or" occurring at the end, the word "and" shall be substituted; and

(b) in section 186 of the said Act, in sub-section (11), in clause (b), after item (iii), the following item shall be inserted, namely :-
