    I have filed INC-7 for incorporation of a company last date of name availability is near. I opted to pay later through paylater facility. Now, I am unable to pay the challan for the error code 2 ‘duplicate merchant ID’. When I complaint to MCA the reply was that the error from Bank’s side but I have tried different Credit/Debit Cards and Net Banking Facility also but of no use. The error persists as it is. The problem is from MCA side but they said that the problem is from Bank’s side.

    Every year MCA issues such kind of Notices/ Advice but every year website gets down in last 5-7 days. Now also majority of times, MCA21 portal is not functioning properly. Sometimes processing error, some times transaction in process. Yesterday only I faced “response code -2 Duplicate merchant transaction ID” error for more than 20 times for one SRN. When I raised ticket, stupid resolution provided was “As verified, the transaction corresponding to SRN xxxxxxxx is not yet reported by bank to MCA. Appropriate action will be taken, once it is reported by the bank. Please contact bank further in this regard”
    Now when I am raising ticket for inability to make payment, how will such payment reach MCA? and worst part is I am not able to reopen this ticket or log a fresh complaint since morning.
    Except last year, MCA has not extended due date in any year and why they are giving such advises to CAs or stakeholders? Why they can’t make form submission simpler or make some new provisions for bulk upload, bulk payment etc? And most important why don’t they enhance capacity of servers for fast processing of SRNs ?.
