Just 120 days to get emails for e-filing mistakes from RoC-15th February 2009 onwards, Companies Regulation 2008 says so

Your document may render "invalid" or "defective" and fresh filing with additional fees is the only option, so care for e-mails!!!
Companies Regulations, 1957


Companies (Amendment) Regulations, 2008

Erstwhile Regulation 17 (1) The Registrar shall examine, or cause to be examined, every document received in his office which is required or authorised by or under the Act to be registered, recorded or filed by or with the Registrar.

17(2) If any such document is found to be defective or incomplete in any respect, the Registrar shall give notice in writing to the company to rectify the defect or complete the document or to file a revised document complete in all respects, within 15 days from the date of such notice.

17(3) In case of failure on the part of the company to rectify the defect or to complete the document within 15 days after giving notice to the company, the document shall be registered, recorded or filed as the case may be, by the Registrar and the company shall be informed accordingly.

Now, the new amendment to replace the above mentioned regulation 17 is as under,

  • This regulation comes into force from 15th February 2009.
  • The things filed with MCA through for approval or registration or record or rectification shall be examined by RoC.
  • The e-forms filed with MCA through for information and filed under Straight Through Processing (STP) may be examined by RoC.
  • RoC to call for information or asks for rectification of defects or incompleteness or to re-submit the things, if it finds necessary, only within 120 days from filing [excluding approval time taken by other authorities like CLB, CG] and intimate the same through website and last known e-mail or if not available, then to last known address or registered office of the company.
  • RoC to wait for 30 days (15 days for shifting registered office from state to state) and if not received or not satisfied with the provided explanation or rectification, it can treat the thing as "invalid" ["defective" in cases of forms filed for information through STP] and intimate accordingly.
  • The Company then has only option to make fresh filing with additional filing fee, as applicable to rectify the 'invalid/defective thing'.
  • This regulation comes into force from 15th February 2009 and RoC is given a time of 60 days and not more than 150 days from 15th February 2009 to re-examine all things of company pending at RoC for more than 30 days from 15th February 2009, by giving intimation as aforesaid.
