Sir in Regulation 17a of SEBI LODR 2015, it is provided that an independent director cannot be WTD/MD in more than 3 entities. However, as per companies act, 149(6)(a), ID cannot be WTD/MD at all .So, why does this clause in reg 17A still exist, isn’t it redundant?

read carefully and also think whether interpretation looks logical
person to be considered as eligible to become independent director of a PARTICULAR COMPANY should not be MD / WTD etc of THAT COMPANY
he can be MD / WTD etc in other companies
