EVERYTHING ABOUT E-FORM INC-32
The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has introduced E – Form INC-32 under SPICe (Simplified Proforma for Incorporating Company Electronically) scheme vide MCA’s notification dated 01/10/2016 notifying Companies fourth amendment Rules,2016. This is a very significant initiative for technological advancement. The basic aim is to simplify the incorporation of a company by filling up an e-form INC-32.
EarlierMCA had come with the integrated process of incorporation by filing E-form INC-29. This was a major reform brought by MCA for incorporation of a company which required filing of only one E-form i.e. INC-29 as against the 5 forms filed earlier. As the entire process is in single form, correct filing would mean approval in 48 hours.
For further simplification, MCA has facilitated the process of incorporation by introducing SPICe E-form INC-32 which provides the same facilities as were provided in Form INC-29 with facilitating the process by introducing filing of Memorandum and Article of Association electronically. As against the earlier process, it has the potential to save lots of time and energy, if properly implemented. However, further clarification with regard to incorporation under SPICe is to be provided by Ministry of Corporate Affairs.
THE FORM CAN BE FILED EVEN AFTER INC-1
As against the facility provided by the e-form INC-29, e-form INC 32 has the facility to fill the form of incorporation of a company even after filing for the INC-1. That is, even if you’ve already filed the INC-1, you can apply for the name of the company INC-32.
IN DEPTH INFORMATION AS COMPARED TO INC-29
The five purposes for company registration, which are application for DIN allotment, reservation of name, incorporation and even PAN and TAN, are fulfilled by both INC-32 and INC-29, but INC-32 has in depth information as compared to INC-29 with an additional introduction of filing of MOA and AOA of the company electronically.
ELECTRONIC FILING OF MOA AND AOA
Now under SPICe, Memorandum and Articles of Association should be filed electronically, simplifying the whole process. In E-form INC-33 a copy paste of the objects of the company has to be done and in E-Form INC-34 a choice has to be made amongst the pre-drafted clauses of Articles of Association.
This has made the task of drafting Memorandum and Article of Association much easier for professionals.
DIGITAL SIGNATURES OF SUBSCRIBERS AND WITNESS
With the introduction of the new electronic Memorandum and Article of Association of the company, there is no need of signatures of subscribers and witness. Only the digital signatures of subscribers and witness on the E-Form INC-33 and E-form INC-34 would be enough for the specific purpose!
SHORTCOMINGS OF INC 32
- Obtaining digital signatures is a costly affair.
- The maximum limit for initial subscribers is 7, exceeding to which, the normal procedure of incorporation must be followed.
- One single name can be proposed in the form as there is no provision for entering multiple names.
