Now with the possibility of sitting at home and accessing the records of all registered companies in the country, as many as 90,000 company records have been viewed over the MCA portal by around 30,000 registered users. This has happened in a span of about two months, after the Ministry of Company Affairs (MCA) initiated e-filing of company records. The portal now gets 5.8 million hits per day.
The project, which is in partnership with Tata Consultancy Services, was pilot launched at Coimbatore in February and completed the national roll out on September 5. The programme at present spans 20 Registrar of Companies (ROC), four Regional Directorates and about 53 locations across the country. With this, companies no longer have to go to the ROC office to file their statutory documents, instead they can be filed online.
Talking to Business Line, Mr Tanmoy Chakrabarty, Vice-President and Head, Global Government Industry Group, Tata Consultancy Services, said, "Individuals, chartered accountants and people from different parts of the world can access company records on the MCA portal. Even an ordinary citizen can register at the Web site.
"After this, he can perform certain functions on the site and trace relevant information of any company. We have also built an interactive portal on the home page that can be downloaded so as to make users acquainted with the portal." Further, all the services can be availed through credit cards and e-banking accounts. About 5.65 lakh company records have been e-filed up till now.
