    Dear Sir

    It could have been more appropriate, if rectification of mistakes be extended to all forms as in there may be several mistake committed by bonafide means and in the age of computer cut and paste are common disease and can not be eliminated though can be reduced as we need to depend on clerical staffs and hence not technical in nature rather clerical and hence mistakes arises which are not material can be ractified apart from form 1, 1A and 44.

    Hope the MCA will take it seriously
