Artificial legal person. A company is an artificial person. Negatively speaking, it is not a natural person.

It exists in the eyes of the law and cannot act on its own. It has to act through a board of directors elected by shareholders.

But for many purposes, a company is a legal person like a natural person. It has the right to acquire and dispose of the property, to enter into contract with third parties in its own name, and can sue and be sued in its own name. However, it is not a citizen as it cannot enjoy the rights under the Constitution of India or Citizenship Act.

It should be noted that though a company does not possess fundamental rights, yet it is person in the eyes of law. It can enter into contracts with its Directors, its members, and outsiders.

Justice Hidayatullah once remarked that if all the members are citizens of India, the company does not become a citizen of India. Separate Legal Entity : A company has a legal distinct entity and is independent of its members. The creditors of the company can recover their money only from the company and the property of the company.

They cannot sue individual members. Similarly, the company is not in any way liable for the individual debts of its members.

The property of the company is to be used for the benefit of the company and nor for 5 the personal benefit of the shareholders. On the same grounds, a member cannot claim any ownership rights in the assets of the company either individually or jointly during the existence of the company or in its winding up.

At the same time the members of the company can enter into contracts with the company in the same manner as any other individual can. Separate legal entity of the company is also recognized by the Income Tax Act.
