Section 256 – THE COMPANIES (COURT) RULES, 1959

256. Default in attending examination under section 477 or 478

(1) If any person who has been directed by the court to attend for examination under section 477 or section 478 fails to attend at the time and place appointed for holding or proceeding with the same, and no good cause is shown by him for such failure, or if before the day appointed for such examination, the Official Liquidator satisfies the Court that such person has absconded or that there is reason to believe that he is about to abscond with the view of avoiding that examination, the Court may, if satisfied that notice of the date and hour fixed for the examination was duly served on such person, issue without any further notice a warrant in Form No. 116 for the arrest of the person required to attend, or make such other order as the Court thinks just.


(2) Every warrant of arrest of any person issued under these rules shall remain in force until it is cancelled by the Court which issued it or by the Court to which appeals ordinarily lie from the decisions of such Court, or until it is executed.
