(iii) Where the company opts to provide Video Conferencing facility, they have to comply with the procedures prescribed in the Circular Nos. 27/2011 & 28/2011, dated 20-5-2011 in this regard.

(iv) The company is free to select Video Conferencing facility of any agency but the Chairman of the meeting and Secretary of the company has to ensure that there is a proper Video Conferencing equipment/facility which enables all persons participating in that meeting to communicate concurrently with each other without an intermediary, and to participate effectively in the meeting.
