As per SEBI LODR we are required to appoint a women independent director on the board of the company by 1st April, 2020. As per the MCA amendment Independent directors are to be selected from the data base maintained by the Indian institute of Corporate affairs with effect from 12 December, 12019.
We have register on the IICA website as corporates and have paid the annual subscription fees. But the search engine to access the database are not available till 1st March 2020. In this case kindly suggest how Women Independent Director can be appointed as the data base is not yet operative.
