If you appoint a person in the EGM or AGM straightaway as director, his form 32 would go as a director in the first instance and thereafter, by another resolution, you make him a whole time director. However, if your articles permit a person to be appointed by the AGM / EGM directly, then you can take this route. Otherwise, the MCA system, if a director is appointed by Board, only lets him be made as additional director. This is because of wording in section 255(2). Though the systems insists making a person as an additional director and then make him a director in general meeting, it is otherwise to be considered as an aberration as seniors like Mr Bipin Acharya - have expressed a view that an act can not be controlled through system software. But be that as it may, you go by whatever is the current day system (efiling). My view is you make two separate resolutions, firstly for induction as a director and then next for appointment as WTD and file them separately. Pre-fill the forms and get verified.
