SRINAGAR, JULY 01: In a significant move to have a proper identification of every person who files any document on MCA Portal, the ROC (Registrar of Companies) J&K & Ladakh has issued directions for all the persons who are either ‘Directors’ in companies or are ‘Designated Partners’ in Limited Liability Partnerships incorporated in J&K to get themselves registered as Business Users immediately on MCA Portal.
Directors of companies and Designated partners of LLPs are further asked to associate their Digital Signature Certificates (DSC) through DSC association service.
Further it is learnt that the letters for this compliance have been signed by Haamid Bukhari and the dispatch exercise in bulk has already started through emails.
As per the data available in public domain, there are approximately 5000 Active companies and LLPs incorporated with the ROC office and the number of such directors and designated partners would be roughly around (6000-7000).
The mailed letter reads that the conversion of existing ‘Registered Users’ into Business Users & Registration of new ones as ‘Business Users’ only are necessitated due to transformation journey of our Online Module known as MCA21 Version 3.
The letter further elaborates the user friendly steps to complete the exercise of registration followed by DSC Association.
This exercise is a nation wide exercise to be carried out by Ministry of Corporate Affairs with the help of Company Secretaries and Chartered Accountants Institute and the purpose is to update yourself to work with the updated information linkages in new Version 3 of MCA system.
This step will ensure complete identification of every single Filer in the system, be it director of any company, designated partner or any professional responsible for doing the ROC filings.
