  1. Hi,
    Can generation of eCSIN be helpful in cases where CS wanna resign from the job due to management deliberate non-compliance however, the board doesn't approves the resignation.
    In such case, due to non-availability of board approval, DIR-12 can't be filed timely and name of the candidate appears on the portal even after resigning from the job because of non-filing of DIR-12. In such scenario, can this eCSIN generation be a savior for the professional? if yes, how because again it is asking for Board resolution date and item no which won'be possible as Board is not ready to allow the CS to resign..
    In such case, its a very trapful situation for the professional..

  2. eSCIN has to be generated if the person is doing business?
