A.The matter is related to the section 241 - 242 of the Companies Act, 2013. First just make the assessment that on what ground the bank has freezed the Company's Bank Account. Is there is any board resolution passed in this regard. There is some more things need to be assessed. The appropriate forum is the National Company law Tribunal to adjudicate this issue.
