    Hello Sir,
    I am filing the form for quarter ended September 30, 2020 (Period April to September 2020), but it is not accepting the “From and To” dates.
    Can you please explain why this error is coming?

  2. Pradeep Garg says:

    I am facing one issue in filing PAS 06, Few members are not willing to demat their holdings, so will it be categorized as physical holdings ?? Though company has filed full details of paid up capital with NSDL and RTA for demat ??

  3. CA P K Bajaj says:

    In pas 6 details of shareholding by directors, promoters & Lamps are required. How details are to be filled up when out of total promoters holding only directors & kmp holdings emerges or in other words directors & kmps were the promoters. So, should we put entire holding under promoter & show director and kmp as zero or vice versa.
