The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has established an added facility under MCA 21, integration with Trade Mark Authority recently. The added feature facilitates professional / public to cross verify Company name before applying for ROC approval.
In addition, the XBRL reporting format has been introduced for filing of financial statements [Balance Sheet and Profit & Loss Account] of select class of companies from FY 2010-11. The Ministry undertook several pro-active measures including monitoring the filing position on day-to-day basis and large scale campaign through messages on the websites of Ministry, Professional Institutes, Trade and Industry chambers. As a result, significant improvement in filings has been achieved. Over 21,500 companies have filed its financial statements in XBRL format so far, which is more than 12,500 companies in the previous month, i.e. November 2011.
