General Circular No: 40/2011
It is noticed that a large number of e-forms filed by the companies with the ROCs prior to implementation of revised regulation 17 of the Companies Regulation, 1956 (i.e. 15-2-2009) are still pending in folders like RESUB, PUCL etc. for want of action on the part of stakeholders. Unless the companies respond to this, ROCs are unable to process the said forms.
2. As per the existing process, the companies have to resubmit or furnish their clarification in Form 67 within the stipulated period of 30 days failing which such forms, filed prior to 15-2-2009, will lie pending in MCA21.

In order to reduce the pendency of such e-forms, Ministry has decided to reopen all such pending forms and the same have been placed in the category "Held in Abeyance" (HIAB) so that ROCs can review the same. Therefore, all ROCs are hereby advised to review such pending work items with them and dispose it by 7th July, 2011.
