    “The Registered Address should be submitted with 15 days of Incorporation”

    • While incorporation the Form INC-22 should be submitted along with Form INC-7 and Form DIR-12. If the due date of filing form INC-22 expired then you will have to now attach copy of registered address as per pre scrutiny error.

  4. due to problem in login to MCA site our Company Form 1, 18 and 32 had been delayed by 2 days (after 60 days of name Approval)

    even our MCA account was blocked many times

    Can we get relief for this company registration since all form uploaded 2 days after the required time ?

    • I think since you have successfully uploaded forms of incorporation after expiry of 60 days, it means that there won’t be problem.

      I advise you that in future if you find any difficulty in uploading form within time specified due to technical issues of MCA portal, please approach nearest Registered office of the company before expiry of specified period alongwith the document, letter of request, form. Even today also some of the professionals are facing the problem in uploading the forms on MCA portal.
      Please note that there is no procedure for extending the period specified for each form. But at least you can request well in advance to ROC concerned person to look into the matter and resolve it. Even you can raise ticket on MCA portal. The system would resolve it within 2 days.
