Directors are responsible for planning and execution of company policies and are involved in decision making. To register a one person company, there should be a minimum of one director.

Shareholders are the owners of the company, and they hold shares in the company. The companies' law in India requires a minimum of 1 shareholder to register a one person company. It also provides that the shareholder can also be director of the One Person Company.
