  1. CARamesh says:

    Due date has been extended for filing DPT-4 till, 31st August, 14.
    Even today MCA is charging 4 times additional Penalty.
    what is the solution?

  2. CS Ramanuj Asawa says:

    I fail to understand how the MCA can extend the date when there is no power given to it under section 74.

    The section speaks about unpaid deposits which became due for repayment.

    No need to file any return if there is no unpaid deposit.

    I agree this is no law and need to be scrapped as early as possible.

    The problem is that there is no one to represent the private companies.

    Someone should bring a PIL in the Supreme Court/ High Court or the courts should take up it suo motu.

  3. ZALAK says:

    Though Due date has been extended for filing DPT-4 till, 31st August, 14, MCA is charging 4 times additional Penalty on 18.08.2014. ROC site has still not been updated or what? Anyone has filed DPT-4 after 30.06.2104. Pls Help.

  4. Rajesh, Mumbai says:

    The reason : most of the private companies might have shown protests by ignoring to file DPT 4. Earlier government enacted an unconstitutional and draconian provision prohibiting even private companies to accept loans from director’s relatives and shareholders. Government should wake up and put things right restoring earlier situation in respects of acceptance of Loans by private companies.
