Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL) has cancelled its board meeting, scheduled to be held on Wednesday for considering the results for the July-September quarter, due to lack of quorum.

In a regulatory filing, ZEEL on Tuesday said, ''A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Company, which was scheduled to be held on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, inter alia, to consider and approve the unaudited financial results of the company both on a standalone and consolidated basis for the 2nd quarter and half year ended September 30, 2021, has been cancelled due to lack of quorum.''

Two independent board members–Manish Chokhani and Ashok Kurien - has resigned from the company last month after allegations of its largest investors Invesco Developing Markets Fund along with OFI Global China Fund LLC.

''The next date of the meeting will be duly informed with fresh notice,'' the company said.
