As everybody is aware the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) portal which is used for filing all compliance forms with the Registrar of Companies (ROC) was in non working condition recently due to change of service provider for the portal. The portal is now working satisfactorily with some minor glitches here and there. The Ministry has also informed regarding the same.
Now, the stakeholders can file the necessary compliance and other documents with ROC. The MCA has also decided to provide relief to companies who were unable to file documents during the non-working period of online portal on a case to case basis.
Update: 27th February, 2013
The portal is running smooth for users but in the backend the process seems to be taking very long. I filed a Form 1A for Name Approval of a company on 20th February and even after more than 7 days there is no update on the same and the status is showing as “Assigned” for the last 6 days. I am sorry to say that the MCA Portal is in a very bad state as of now and is reminding me of the earlier ROC where all the things happened on Snail Pace. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs officials have at this time done a major bungling and even after more than one month are unable to run the portal and backend smoothly which is causing lots of heartburn for its users and businesses.
