Presently the procedure for striking the name of the Company is very detailed and time consuming, the Company has to file all its pending statutory returns and apply under form 61.

 

FTE Guidelines in Brief:

 

The FTE Guidelines is an improvement over the previous Easy Exit Scheme (EES) and will provide an opportunity to the defunct companies to Fast Track Exit with minimal compliance.
