The MCA has vide its notification dated 24th August, 2017, amended the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal Rules, 2016.
Rule 63 which hitherto specified that any party to any proceedings or appeal before the Appellate Tribunal may either appear in person or authorise one or more chartered accountants or cost accountants or company secretaries or legal practitioners or any other person to present his case before the Appellate Tribunal.
Now a sub Rule (2) has been added to the Rule 63, which allows the Central Government or Regional Director or Registrar of Companies or Official Liquidator to authorise an officer or an advocate to represent them in the proceedings before the Appellate Tribunal. If it is an officer, then it shall not be below the rank of junior time scale or company prosecutor.
