Purpose: The purpose of the paper is to understand the concept of the Doctrine of Indoor Management. Research Implications: The paper provides a basic overview of the Theory of Indoor Management in Company law by discussing the development of the doctrine, its legal status under Indian Company Law, and key case laws pertaining to the doctrine. Findings: This theory exists primarily to defend the interests and rights of third parties who engage in good faith transactions with the firm and to whom the company owes money. This regulation emphasizes that outsiders participating in transactions with a public business are not required to perform a thorough investigation of the firm's internal procedures and processes and that they will not be impacted by any irregularities they are ignorant of. he Turquand rule has since been utilized in other Indian instances to defend the rights of third parties against corporations. For the correct application of this doctrine in the modern era, several exceptions have emerged over time, such as forgery, negligence, knowledge of irregularity, acts done beyond the scope of apparent authority, etc., which strike a balance by providing reasonable protection to both the company's outsiders and the company.
