    The Fast Track Exit Scheme allows non-defunct companies an easy exit by having their names struck off the Register of Companies. The Easy Exit Scheme was introduced by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) to allow defunct companies an easy exit by having their name struck off the Register of Companies, where they have been inoperative since incorporation or commenced business and subsequently became inoperative. However, there are many other companies registered under the Companies Act 1956 which commenced operation and then became inoperative, have been inoperative since incorporation or were initially operative but later became defunct. To allow such companies to benefit from such a scheme, the ministry introduced its new guidelines under the fast-track scheme. These guidelines were implemented on July 3 2011.

    Is it possible to strike off a company which has not submitted any annual report including the balance sheet and profit & loss account right from inception with the ROC, through this EES 2011. If possible, what are the documents they have to attach besides the EES form and the authorisation letter and the fees for such period ?

    • Dushyant Chaudhari says:

      The EES is in fact meant for such companies. You can go for this scheme if all other conditions are satisfied. You have to submit affidavits and Indemnity Bond of Directors and a Statement of Account as at specified date. Please ready the Scheme. It is really very easy.
