As per the provisions of section 149 of the companies act, 2013, every private company should have minimum 2 directors and public company should have 3 directors, and in case of 1 person company minimum number of directors is one. Maximum number of directors in a company is 15. If a company wants to have more than 15 directors it can do so by passing a special resolution. So, a private company and public company cannot have 1 director. But if the company is One person company it can have 1 director.
