The Indian Ministry of Corporate Affairs has implemented an e-Governance Project called 'MCA21' to improve the speed and certainty in delivery of MCA services in a transparent manner.
Primarily, this improvement would be ensured through he mechanism of secure electronic filing (e-filing) and easy online payment for all the services provided by the Registrar of Companies. Therefore, it is a step towards an end-to-end paperless delivery of the Government services with widespread use of Digital Signature to carry out e-filing in a secure manner with the Information Technology Act, 2000. The Ministry has firstly started the project from Coimbatore, now it is available at all the ROC locations. A total of 25.32 lakh documents have been filed online since the launch of this project. The stakeholders can now file their documents on-line at any time and from anywhere in a 24 X 7 X 365 time frame from the comfort of their offices or homes without physically visiting the ROC offices.
