sum is due shall pay interest on the sum from the day appointed
for payment to the time of actual payment at such rate not exceeding
six per cent a year but the Board shall be at liberty to waive payment

(5) Any sum which by terms of issue of a share becomes

Rules be deemed to be a call duly made and payable on the date on
which by the terms of issue the same becomes payable, and in
case of non-payment all the relevant provisions of these Rules as
to payment of interest and expenses, forfeiture or otherwise shall
apply as if the sum had become payable by virtue of a call duly

(6) The Board may not, on issue of shares, distinguish

times of payment, unless an express arrangement to that effect has

form which the Board shall approve:

(2) Any person becoming entitled to a share in
consequence of the death or bankruptcy of a member shall, upon
the production to the satisfaction of the Bank of such evidence as
it may require, have the right, either to be registered himself or to
have the transfer of the share made as the deceased or bankrupt
person could have made; but the Board shall in either case have
the same right to decline or suspend registration as it would have
had in the case of a transfer of the share by the deceased or bankrupt
person before the death or bankruptcy.

(3) All the limitations, restrictions and provisions of these
Rules relating to the right to transfer and the registration of transfers
of shares shall be applicable to any such transfer as mentioned
above as if the death or bankruptcy of the member had not occurred
and transfer were a transfer signed by that member.

(4) A person becoming entitled to a share by reason of
the death or bankruptcy of the holder shall be entitled to the same
dividends and other advantages to which he would be entitled if
he were the registered holder of the share, except that he shall not,
before being registered as a member in respect of the share, be
entitled in respect of it to exercise any right conferred by
membership in relation to meetings of the Bank.

(5) However, the Board may at any time give notice
requiring any such person to elect either to be registered himself
or to transfer the share, and if the notice is not complied with within
ninety days, the Board may thereafter withhold payment of all
dividends, bonuses or other moneys payable in respect of the share
until the requirements of the notice have been complied with.

45. (1) If a member fails to pay any call or instalment of a
call on the day appointed for payment thereof, the Board may, at
any time thereafter during such time as any part of the call or
instalment remains unpaid, direct service of a notice on him
requiring payment of so much of the call or instalment as is unpaid,
together with any interest if any which may have accrued.

before which the payment required by the notice is to be made,
and shall state that in the event of non-payment at or before the
time appointed the shares in respect of which the call was made
will be liable to be forfeited.

(3) If the requirements of any such notice as aforesaid
are not complied with, any share in respect of which the notice has
been given may at any time thereafter, before the payment required
by the notice has been made, be forfeited by a resolution of the
Board to that effect.

(4) A forfeited share may be sold or otherwise disposed
of on such terms and in such manner as the Board may think fit,
and at any time before a sale or disposition the forfeiture may be
cancelled on such terms as the Board thinks fit.

(5) A person whose shares have been forfeited shall cease
to be a member in respect of the forfeited shares, but shall,
notwithstanding, remain liable to pay to the Bank all moneys which,
at the date of forfeiture, were payable by him to the Bank in respect
of the shares, but his liability shall cease if and when the Bank has
received payment in full of all such moneys in respect of the shares.

Bank has been duly forfeited on a date stated in the declaration,

of the person to whom the share is sold or disposed of and he shall
thereupon be registered as the holder of the share, and shall not be
bound to see to the application of the purchase money, if any, nor
shall his title to the share be affected by any irregularity or invalidity
in the proceedings, in reference to the forfeiture, sale or disposal
of the share.

whether on account of the nominal value of the share or by way

paid-up shares into stock, and reconvert any stock into
paid-up shares.

(2) The holders of stock may transfer the same, or any
part thereof, in the same manner, and subject to the same Rules
and Regulations, as the subject to which the shares from which the
stock arose might previously to conversion have been transferred,
or as near thereto as circumstances admit; and the Board may
from time to time fix the minimum amount of stock transferable
but so that such amount shall not exceed the nominal amount of
the shares from which the stock arose.

(3) The holders of stock shall, according to the amount
of stock held by them, have the same rights, privileges and
advantages as regards dividend, voting at meetings of the Bank
and other matters as if they held the shares from which the stock
arose, but no such privilege or advantage (except participation in
the dividends and profits of the Bank) shall be conferred by an
amount of stock which would not, if existing in shares, have
conferred that privilege or advantage.

(4) Such of the rules and regulations as are applicable to

“shareholder” therein shall include “stock” and “stockholder”.

47. (1) The Board may vary the authorised share capital of
the Bank with approval of the Minister by resolution of the Board
at any meeting prescribed by the Act. At least fourteen days’ notice
in writing of the meeting shall be given and the notice shall specify

such resolution may be rendered invalid by default in service of
the notice calling the meeting unless members not served waive
service of the notice.

which they are entitled. The offer shall be made by notice specifying
the number of shares offered, and limiting a time within which the

expiration of that time, or on the receipt of an intimation from the

(3) No dividend shall be paid otherwise than out of profits.
(4) The Board may, before recommending any dividend,

set aside out of the profits of the Bank such sums as it thinks proper
as a reserve or reserves which shall, at the discretion of the Board,
be applicable for meeting any contingencies or for equalising

be invested in such investment (other than shares of the Bank) as
the Board may from time to time think fit. The Board may also
without placing the same to reserve carry forward any profits which
it may determine not to divide.

(5) Subject to the rights of persons, if any, entitled to
shares with special rights as to dividend, all dividends shall be
declared and paid according to the amounts paid or credited as
paid on the shares in respect whereof the dividend is paid, but no
amount paid or credited as paid on a share in advance of calls shall

dividends shall be apportioned and paid proportionately to the
amount paid or credited as paid on the shares during any portion
or portions of the period in respect of which the dividend is paid,
unless any share is issued on terms providing that it shall rank for
dividend as from a particular date when the share shall rank for
dividend accordingly.

(6) The Board may deduct from any dividend payable to
any member all sums of money (if any) payable by him to the
Bank on account of calls or otherwise in relation to the shares of
the Bank, or to other dealings or transactions with the Bank, at the
date of declaration of the dividend.

(7) Any general meeting declaring a dividend or bonus
may direct payment of the dividend or bonus wholly or partly by
the distribution of specific assets and in particular of paid-up
shares or stock of the Bank or in any one or more of such ways,
and the Board shall give effect to such resolution and may vest
any such specific assets as to it may seem expedient, in manner
mentioned above.

of the undivided profits resolved to be capitalised thereby and all
allotments and issues of fully-paid shares or debentures, if any,
and generally shall do all acts and things required to give effect

to enter on behalf of all the members entitled thereto into an
agreement with the Bank providing for the allotment to them
respectively, credited as fully-paid up, of any further shares or

or (as the case may require) for the payment by the Bank on their

Any agreement made under such authority shall be effective and
