MCA has received representation to clarify the issue of filing Forms GNL-2 (prospectus related documents) and MGT-14 (Resolutions relating to prospectus related documents) due to the MCA21 Portal transition from V2 to V3 from 07/01/2023 to 22/01/2023, as these forms will not be available for filing in MCA21 Portal V2. However, due to certain time-sensitive activities, these forms must be filed in a timely manner.

MCA has examined the matter and has decided that companies intending to file Forms GNL-2 and MGT-14 on the MCA-21 Portal between 07/01/2023 and 22/01/2023 may do so in physical mode, duly signed by the persons concerned as per the requirements of the relevant forms, along with a copy thereof in electronic media, with the concerned Registrar without payment of fee and receive acknowledgement (as per Annexure to this Circular). Such filing will be accompanied by an undertaking from the company that, once such filing is enabled on the portal, the company will file the relevant Form in electronic form on the MCA-21 Portal, along with fees payable in accordance with the Companies (Registration Offices and Fees) Rules, 2014.

Furthermore, as clarified by General Circular 1/2023 dated 09/01/2023, no additional fees will be levied for the period during which the e-filing was disabled.
