MCA has introduced a simplified Incorporation Form-INC-29 for ease of doing business.

For ease of doing business, Ministry of Corporate Affairs has introduced a simplified Incorporation Form-INC-29. The form offers a number of advantages over traditional incorporation forms in terms of reduced number of procedures, time taken and the cost involved in getting approval. With this integrated single form, a company can be registered in India, get allotment of Director Identification Number, name availability, incorporation of company and commencement of business. This form can also generate PAN and TAN.

Instead of 8 different forms earlier, now with one single form, setting up of new business would be easier and convenient.

The relevant notifications for these are available on the MCA website www.mca.gov.in

Further, the mandatory requirement of having a common seal has also been done away with the amendment in the Act vide Companies (Amendment) Act 2015 applicable from 29th May 2015. Therefore, the members are requested not to insist on such a non-mandatory requirement. If required, the members may advise the companies to amend the Articles of Association to do away with the requirement of having a common seal, if the company so desire.

Public, private firms need to follow secretarial standards: Atul Mehta, president, ICSI

KOLKATA: Both public and private companies would have to follow the secretarial standards which became effective from July 1, the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) today said.

"If any firm was found violating the secretarial standards norms, it would be subject to a penalty of Rs 25,000 and the concerned company secretary would have to pay a fine of Rs 5,000 per meeting attended," ICSI president Atul Mehta said.

"The secretarial standards have become effective from July 1 this year and both the public and private limited companies will have to comply with them," Mehta told reporters here.

He said that the companies would have to file an annual return on secretarial practices to be appended along with the director's report and also get the statutory secretarial audit done by a practising company secretary.

Mehta said that the standards have given more clarity on some aspects of the Company Law passed in 2013.

The role of independent directors have also become important as they have been identified as key managerial personnel (KMP) and there is a lot of liability put on them.

In India, there were 10 lakh companies, out of which nine lakh were private and the rest public, out of which around 7,100 were listed, he said.
