The Companies (Amendment) Bill, 2020 as well as the Companies (General) (Amendment) Regulations, 2020 seek to allow companies to hold virtual or hybrid meetings. Virtual meetings happen when people conduct meetings regardless of their location, using video, audio, and text, to link up online to share information and data in real-time without being physically located together. Meetings on the other hand are held when a subset of the people attending the meeting are located together in the same place while the other participants join the meeting virtually. The proposed law requires companies opting for the virtual or hybrid meetings to provide clear instructions of accessing and participating in the proceedings of the meeting.
