There is no evidence or feedback suggesting that the decline is in any way attributable to “tedious compliance” entailed by the new Act. However, it is a fact that the provisions of Companies Act, 2013 have safeguards against floating “shell companies”. Further, the decline is also attributable to introduction of new e-forms and the time taken by professionals to become familiar with such forms.

About 60% of the provisions of the Companies Act, 2013 entered into force from 01.04.2014. The Companies Act, 2013 and Rules made thereunder contain essential features of good corporate governance which are to be adopted by companies incorporated under the Companies Act, 2013. Almost all policy elements recommended by the Committee on Corporate Governance (Adi Godrej Committee) stands incorporated in the Companies Act, 2013.

An Expert Committee has been constituted by this Ministry recently to (a) review the e-forms notified under the Companies Act, 2013 (b) to suggest changes aimed at simplifications of such forms and (c) removal of difficulties faced by stakeholders.

This was stated by Shri Arun Jaitley, Minister of Corporate Affairs in written reply to a question in the Rajya Sabha today.
