Stringent Compliance Norms In Place To Crackdown Shell Firms

The amendment made earlier in the month puts forth that "Where a company governed by Rule 25A of the Companies (Incorporation) Rules, 2014, fails to file the e-form ACTIVE within the period specified therein, the Director Identification Number (DIN) allotted to its existing directors, shall be marked as 'Director of ACTIVE non-compliant company'".

And in such a case, when the company director has been tagged this way, he or she can take all necessary steps to ensure that their company is governed as per rule 25A. The active concept is in place for tagging the registered office of a company. Firms incorporated on or before December 31, 2017, were required to file particulars in e-Form ACTIVE by April 25, 2019.
