The job fair did not only aim to bring job seekers and employers under one roof but also seeks to guide candidates on various career paths and innovative job hunt tactics, that are available in Mumbai, Thane, Navi Mumbai, Vasai-Virar and adjoining areas.

Both the young and enthusiastic founders Vikash Chowdhury and Anupam Sinhal, who started the company ‘NanoJobs.com’, based on a requirement that they had to fulfil in a very short span, felt the response the job fair received has only made them more determined to organise many more of these in the coming future. Says Anupam Sinhal – Director, Nanojobs.com, “We always wanted to create a platform where the jobseeker and the hiring company can connect with a hassle free approach and with the Rojgaar Nandini Shibir we seemed to have hit the bull’s eye. Post this; we aim to take this model to different cities in Maharashtra and further to all India”.

The shares issued through ESOPs amount to 5% of the company’s total paid up equity capital.

Says J. C. Mansukhani, “In order to take control of the company, Mr. R C Mansukhani along with others had wrongfully issued 26, 64,000 shares as ESOP to Employee Welfare Trust by fabricating proceedings of board meetings and disobeying own undertaking before Company Law Board not to change the shareholding pattern. We went in appeal to the Company Law Board and are satisfied with their judgement.

The CLB order states that, “It is apparent from the careful perusal of the chain of events which have taken place immediately after filing petition relating to the allotment of 26,64,000 equity shares to Respondent no 16 (a) to 16 (c ) that the decisions taken in undue haste. Admittedly, the decisions to come out with ESOS/ESOPS was taken in the month of September 2008, however until 05/09/2012 nothing happened and no steps were taken. It appears that company started taking steps only in September 2012 and immediately after filing petition, this decision was implemented. Therefore, there are reasons to believe that after having come to know about the preparation and filing of the present petition by the petitioners the respondents started taking action and immediately after noticing the mistake in the proceedings dated 11/10/2012, they took undue advantage thereof and implemented their decision. The aforesaid facts give strength and support to the allegations made by the petitioners that was all deliberate and intentional move. It has not been disputed that on account of issuance of 26, 64,000 equity shares in the manner aforesaid the shareholding of petitioner has been reduced to 24.50% from 28.83% and the shareholding of the R1 has correspondingly increased from 35.23% to 38.13%. There are reasons to believe that the respondents no 16 (a) to 16 (c ) are the persons who are close to R1 and exercising the rights of vote by them in favour of R1  can not be ruled out. I am therefore, of the opinion that the said allotment of shares is not only in violation of the court’s order but also has been made for the sole purpose to increase the shareholding of the R1 and to decrease the shareholding of the Petitioners in order to gain control in the affairs of the company. In view of above findings, the said allotment of 26, 64,000 equity shares in favour of R 16 (a) to 16 (c) are liable to be set aside.

Having held that the said allotment of the shares is in violation of the court’s order and the motive was also malafide and thus liable to be set aside, the next question arises for my consideration is as to what order is required to be passed to secure end of justice. In my considered opinion, the setting aside of the allotment of shares in favour of R-16 (a) to R 16 (c ) and further making status quo ante as it existed prior to filing the petition on 11/10/2012 will be just, proper and fair and by doing so the substantial justice will be done between the parties.

It is declared that the meeting of the compensation committee purportedly held on 15/10/2012 is illegal and their decision to allot 26,64,000 shares as ESOPS is non-est, ineffective and invalid being in contravention of the undertaking tendered by the R6 Company through its Counsel before the bench on 11/10/2012. Accordingly, the issue and allotment of impugned 26, 64,000 shares in favour of the R16 (a) to 16 (c) is hereby cancelled. The status-quo ante in respect of the shareholding pattern of the R6 Company, as it existed on 11/10/2012 is restored. The R6 Company and its present Board of Directors are directed to take steps accordingly. The ROC, Mumbai shall do the needful to comply with the direction.”

Notices for calling Extra Ordinary General Meeting of shareholders of Man Industries dated 15th January, 2013 were served by JC Mansukhani on the Company for appointment of 5 additional directors and removal of all existing directors including Chairman Mr. R C Mansukhani. The Hon’ble Company Law Board, Mumbai Bench has, vide its Order 30th May, 2013, held that “the Petitioners (J C Mansukhani) are free to act upon their notice thereby calling upon the EOGM. The R6 Company is directed to take necessary steps in accordance with law. The interim stay, if any, is hereby vacated.”

Pursuant to above verdict, the Company was required to convene the Extra-Ordinary General Meeting by 12th June, 2013. In view of the failure of the Board of Directors of the Company to convene the EOGM within the stipulated time period as mentioned above, J C Mansukhani has initiated actions to convene and hold the EOGM on Thursday, July 25, 2013 in accordance with the provisions of the Section 169 of the Companies Act, 1956. The EOGM Notice can be viewed on  www.jcmangroup.com.

J C Mansukhani has also given an offer to Mr. R C Mansukhani & Group to buy their shares as directed by Company Law Board in its Judgement of 30th May 2013.

J C Mansukhani further states that Mr. R C Mansukhani has adopted unfair means by misusing the platform of BSE and NSE website to communicate with the innocent shareholders and thereby misguide and mislead them with false announcements under pretext of “Outcome of Board Meeting” to put hurdle in the smooth convening of EOGM. This also amounts to contempt of Court order by the Company. J C Mansukhani has complained to SEBI to protect the right of minority shareholders and take strong action against these malicious activities of Chairman and compliance officer.
