Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has issued a general circular extending the timeline for filing 45 company e-forms and PAS-03 in MCA-21 Version 3. These extensions are provided without any payment of additional fees. This extension was notified on 7th February, 2023.
It may be recalled that MCA has changed the manner of filing in Version 3 and has included fresh process of registration of users on MCA-21. It has also introduced the process of stabilisation of 45 forms with effect from 23rd January, 2023. Hence, MCA has allowed additional 15 days for filing of these forms without additional fees.
Moreover, form PAS-03 was closed for filing on version 2 on 20th January, 2023 and launched on version 3 on 23rd January, 2023. Hence those stakeholders whose due dates for filing fall between 20th January, 2023 to 6th February, 2023 can also file PAS-03 without payment of additional fees for a period of 15 days.
