  25. Dear Ms. Meenal,

    Warm Greetings,

    At the outset, I would like to thank you for sharing informative articles on your blog.

    It is of immense help to young professionals & students like me. I sincerely hope that you will be able to spare a few minutes to resolve my query made here-under.

    Vacation of Office u/s. 167 vis-a-vis Resignation from Directorship u/s. 168:

    Can you please clarify on the difference between the term RESIGNATION and VACATION of office.

    I understand that form DIR-11 has to be filed by a director who is RESIGNING from a company under section 168(1) pursuant to Rule 16 of the Companies (Registration Offices and Fees) Rules, 2014.

    Does a vacation of office under Section 167 tantamount to resignation and imply filing of DIR-11 or is it enough if the concerned company can file the DIR-12 alone and the director be advised not to file DIR-11.

    The issue in filing DIR-11 is that the director being a DEFAULTING DIRECTOR, is not able to affix his signature in the form.

    Thanking you in advance.

  26. hii mam,

  41. Goodevening mam,
    I have a small query.I have 2 companies one of them company has no business apart from some interest income but is active from filing point of view.It has a large sum of income tax refunds.What do i do , that my filing and tax expenses are reduced and the chances of income tax refund recovery is retained. Second co. has small business with small profit a year and paid up capital of 20 lakhs.Should i convert it into LLP, looking at the increasing compliances and other ancilliary expenses.plzz advice

    • You can convert your second company into LLP as per your choice to avoid increasing compliance and other ancillary expenses. regarding first company you can wait for retaining the refund of income tax.

    • I was adviced by someone to strike off the second company but keep the bank account open for the income tax refunds.is it possible? Because the compliance cost are very much as compared to no profit in the company..

      • I think you cannot keep bank account open for income tax refund, because while making striking off application, the designated partners have to submit an affidavit and indemnity bond saying that all balances became nil and there are no dues pending.

  42. Hi mam, we are floating a section 8 company and got the name approval for the same.while applying for RD 01,(licence) iam supposed to attach INC 12 which i was said to fill the form manually, since iam unable to use the prefill button in the form,kindly plz do let me know the correct procedure to file the form RD 01 along with the attachments…

  43. Respected Meenal Ji

    I am CS by qualification (ACS-10842). Retired recently from job and aspiring to start practice. One of the queries is whether under Section 184 of the new Cos Act 2013, a Director is required to disclose his concern/interest every financial year to the company even if there is no change in his concern/interest? If yes, every year the form is required to be filed with ROC? Is company also required to file such form with ROC? Is there any justification in wasting time,money and energy when there is no change in concern/interest of a director? Whether these provisions are also applicable to a purely private company too?

    • As per Section 184 of Companies act 2013, every company shall file form MGT-14 for disclosing the interest by directors. The director shall disclose his interest in the first board meeting of every financial year or after change of his interest. if the director is not interested in any firm/ partnership firm/ company/ body corporate, then it would be good compliance if the company shall pass board resolution showing that none of the director is interested in other firm. In such case, the company shall not be required to file MGT-14 form with Registrar.

      If the director is interested, then in the first board meeting of every financial year shall disclose his interest and the company shall file form MGT-14 every year till he is interested in other firm/ company. This section is applicable to Private Ltd company.

  50. FOR HOW MUCH AMOUNT OF STAMP DUTY WILL BE ADVISABLE TO PAY THROUGH REVENUE STAMP ON THE SHARE CERTIFICATE.

    • You may affix revenue stamp if the stamp duty may range from Rs. 100- Rs. 1000. Above Rs. 1000 /- you may need to frank it and above Rs. 5000/- you may need to pay stamp duty which is called as e-stamp duty. I assume that stamp duty which you will pay for issue of share certificate in Maharashtra.

  51. Hi,

    I was unable to verify an Indian company in
    http://www.mca.gov.in. Does that mean the company is not legitimate? Do all companies in India have to be registered? Is there another way to verify the company’s legitimacy? Thank you.

    • Only companies Registered with the “Registrar of Companies” (RoC) e.g. Private Limited, Public, LLP, OPC etc. can be verified through http://www.mca.gov.in

      There could be instances where the Businesses/Companies are running as Proprietorship firm or Partnership Firm, which can not be verified online using the http://www.mca.gov.in

      You could ask the concerned business to provide their CIN, if they claim to be Registered with RoC & verify the same. Hope this helps.

    1) webfox

    We had a name “Pkweb Solution” Actually PK stands for our Grandfather name(Prafulla Kumar )
    Can you please point out whats the cause of rejection of these name .

    I will be always thankful to you if you can kindly help us

    Thanks & Best Regards
    Abhilash

    • Please refer Companies (Incorporation) Rules 2014 to check the name guidelines. The Registrar of Companies might have rejected the name because the name was not starting with some prefix. The name of company should start with some Prefix. If the name includes the name of father/ grandfather, then proof of identity of that person should be attached. I would advise you to please check the query with the Registrar, because now a days, the Government allows to resubmit form for once.

    • I assume you are referring to Registering/Parking your Domain Name for the Website purpose. I would suggest you to wait till Formation/Incorporation with your preferred name. There may be some instances of Name rejection by MCA (if it’s found duplicate for some reason).

  93. hi mam
    public company incorporation procedure companies act 2013

  94. Dear madam,

    Can you please let us know the pre requisite for company registration as per the companies act of 2013.

    I heard that company need atleast one woman director so is it mandatory to have one woman director in the company. If suppose we start the company with minimum two director so do we need atleast one woman director from two or we can start the company without appointing woman director.

    Your advice will be highly appreciated.

    • As per proviso of Section 146 of the Companies Act 2013 such class or classes of companies shall have at least one woman director. For the purposes of second proviso to sub-section (1) of section 149 the following class of companies shall appoint at least one woman director within the period indicated against each of them, as under:-
      (i) every listed company – within one year from the commencement of second proviso to sub-section (1) of section 149;
      (ii) every other company having a paid–up share capital of one hundred crore rupees or more – within three years from the commencement of second proviso to sub-section (1) of section 149;

      please check the above criteria and then decide the applicability.

  95. HI,
    I have one doubt….just after incorporation of our Pvt ltd co. One of our director resigned but we appointed another director before he resign. We transfered the shares to new director and informed to ROC by filling form 32.

    Want to know do we have to change the Table A of MOM and MOA in which we declare no. of shares holding by each Director.

    regards,
    Krishna

  96. Dear madam
    I am very much impressed with your blog. You are real professional giving all basic info and FAQ . In contrast my advisor who I met for forming a company was not at all transparent.
    I wanted to form a pvt co.

    Is the filing fees increasing 3/4 times with new company law. Is it true that I must file before march 25th to avoid increased fees.How the formation can be completed in one week? Is it really possible?
    I need yr advise before contacting my advisor back or change my advisor.

    • It will not possible now to file documents of incorporation before 25th because as per Public notice, the Registrar of Companies has stop the facility of re submission of same application. Then again you will have to apply for registration as per New Companies Act 2013 and again you will have to pay registration fees. In order to avoid such risk, it will be advisable to do registration after implementation of New Companies Act 2013.

      Annexure B of New Company Act 2013 talks about ROC fees.It is not yet implemented and hence I cannot give you more details.
      Please refer CHAPTER XXIV ROC offices & fees for more details.

  97. Dear Madam
