During the examination it was found that the data furnished in the e-forms were totally different as compared to the records of the company.

As per the Ministry of Corporate Affairs these are public documents and by furnishing false information to the government as well as to the other stakeholders of the company, the practicing professionals have neglected in discharging their duties and have rendered themselves liable for penal action under Companies Act, 1956 as well as professional misconduct.

If found guilty in preliminary enquiry by the Regional Director, the concerned professional institute will be informed to initiate an enquiry under their regulations. Simultaneously, the concerned professional shall be debarred to submit any document on MCA portal till final enquiry report is received from the respective professional institutes.

Professionals are now to be responsible for submitting /certifying documents (to be signed digitally by them) and system would accept most of these documents online without approval by Registrar of Companies or other officers of the Ministry.
