The shareholders also rejected the resolution to authorise the board to appoint and fix the remuneration of branch auditors. Shareholders approved the audited financial results of the bank and the appointment of Gopinathan CK as a director.

According to the regulatory filing, 65.44 per cent of the shareholders present at the AGM voted against the proposal to appoint PB Vijayaraghavan & Co, Chartered Accountants, Chennai, as statutory auditors as also the appointment of branch auditors.

The Kerala High Court directive comes in the wake of a writ petition filed by KN Madhusoodanan, a shareholder, P Mohanan and Prakash DL, seeking a direction from the court to place their candidatures also for the directorship at the AGM.

The stock of Dhanlaxmi Bank closed 0.94 per cent higher at ₹16.10 on the BSE.
