Companies (Court) Rules, 1959
(1) After the admission of a petition for the winding-up of a company by the Court, upon the application of a creditor, or a contributory, or of the company, and upon proof by affidavit of sufficient ground for the appointment of a Provisional Liquidator, the Court, if it thinks fit and upon such terms as in the opinion of the Court shall be just and necessary, may appoint the Official Liquidator to be Provisional Liquidator of the company pending final orders on the winding-up petition. Where the company is not the applicant, notice of the application for appointment of Provisional Liquidator shall be given to the company unless the Court, for special reasons to be recorded in writing, dispenses with the notice.
(2) The order appointing the Provisional Liquidator shall set out the restrictions and limitations, if any, on his powers imposed by the Court. The order shall be in Form No. 49, with such variations as may be necessary.
