**SMALL DEPOSITORS** A depositor who has deposited less than Rs. 20000 in a company in a financial year is known as small depositor. If a company is accepting any deposit from small depositors then it shall inform Company Law Board of any default made by it in repayment of deposits or interest No further deposits should be accepted by the company unless each small depositor has been paid the amount of his deposit and interest thereon. If any amount of interest has been waived off on the deposits of a small depositor then this shall be mentioned by the company in every advertisement. Thanks

(5) Every company, which has on any occasion made a default in the repayment of a deposit or part thereof or any interest thereupon to a small depositor, shall state, in every future advertisement and application form inviting deposits from the public, the total number of small depositors and amount due to them in respect of which such default has been made. (6) Where any interest accrued on deposits of the small depositors has been waived, the fact of such waiver shall be mentioned by the company in every advertisement and application form inviting deposits issued after such waiver. (7) Where a company had accepted deposits from small depositors and subsequent to such acceptance of deposits, obtains funds by taking a loan for the purposes of its working capital from any bank, it shall first utilise the funds so obtained for the repayment of any deposit or any part thereof or any interest thereupon to the small depositor before applying such funds for any other purpose. (8) Every application form, issued by a company to a small depositor for accepting deposits from him, shall contain a statement to the effect that the applicant had been apprised of - (a) every past default by the company in the repayment of deposit or interest thereon, if any, such default has occurred ; and (b) the waiver of interest under sub-section (6), if any, and reasons therefor. (9) Whoever knowingly fails to comply with the provisions of this section or comply with any order of the Tribunal shall be punishable with imprisonment which may extend to three years and shall also be liable to fine for not less than five hundred rupees for every day during which such non-compliance continues. (10) If a company or any other person contravenes any provision of this section, every person, who at the time the contravention was committed, was a director of the company, as well as the company, shall be deemed to be guilty of the offence and shall be liable to be proceeded against and punished accordingly. (11) The provisions of section 58A shall, as far as may be, apply to the deposits made by a small depositor under this section. Regards,
