Endorsement of Minute (Nirnaya Pustikaran)

The members secretary should draft the decisions of the meeting in a minute book. Such decisions should be approved by every member presented in the meeting. It becomes valid and authentic only when all the presented members in the meeting grant their approvals by singing on it. The act of confirming the decisions made in the meeting by obtaining the signatures of all the members in the minute book is called endorsement of the minute. Endorsement is necessary for the validity of the minuting. Generally, the signature of the members is made on the same day, but, sometimes, if the decisions are too long and it is not possible to draft the minutes on the same day, the decisions should be written in a rough paper with the authorized signature of the presented members in the meeting secretary. A copy of such decisions is sent to each member presented in the meeting asking them to give their approval within 24 to 36 hours. Any member can oppose the decisions within the prescribed time. If no opposition is made by all the members within the specified time, it said to be endorsed. After being approved by all the members, it is drafted fairly by the member secretary and the signature is made in the forthcoming meeting.
