Subject: Notification of sections of the Companies (Amendment) Act, 2017 - Reg. 

The Companies Act, 2013 has undergone various amendments over the past five years since its being brought into force. Of these. the Companies (Amendment) Act, 2017 can very well be considered a game changer for its holistic approach and for providing comfort to the stakeholders as regards compliance while stressing upon and strengthening various aspects of the law. 

Sir, as regards the same, we wish to bring to your kind notice the status of notification of amendment made in Section 92 (Annual Return) and Section 134 (Financial Statement, Board's Report. etc.) which is as under: 


Section Pre-Amendment Post Amendment Date of notification
 92(3) An extract of the annual return in such form as may be prescribed shall form part of the Board's report Every company shall place a copy of the annual return on the website of the company, if any, and the web-link of such annual return shall be disclosed in the Board's report. Yet to be notified
I34(3)(a) There shall be attached to statements laid before a company in general meeting, a report by its Board of Directors. which shall include the extract of the annual return as provided under sub-section (3) of section 92 There shall be attached to statements laid before a company in general meeting, a report by its Board of Directors, which shall include the web address, if any, where annual return referred to in sub-section (3) of section 92 has been placed 31st July, 2018 
       

It may be noted that in Section 134(3)(a) pertaining to inclusion of the web address in lieu of extract of Annual Return in the Board's Report has been notified on and made effective from 31st July. 2018, the corresponding section for the reference made therein, i.e., Section 92(3) stating the placing Annual Return on the website is yet to be notified. Therefore, in view of non-notification of amendment to Section92(3), the provision of making extract of annual return a part of Board's Report remains in force. The law while intended at providing relief to the corporates and the professionals alike has been raising practical difficulties on account of not being notified.
