Case I: Form MGT-7 already Prescrutinised & Form AOC-4/AOC-4 XBRL being prescrutinised

Following dates are entered in the prescrutinised Form MGT-7

• Financial Year- 31.03.2015

• Actual date of AGM- 31.10.2015

• Due date of AGM- 30.09.2015

If you prescrutinise Form AOC-4/AOC-4 XBRL with the following dates:

• Financial Year- 31.03.2015

• Actual date of AGM- 30.09.2015

• Due date of AGM- 30.09.2015

Please note that actual date of AGM entered in form AOC-4/AOC-4 XBRL (30.09.15) is different from date entered in already prescrutinised form MGT-7 (31.10.2015). Hence if you proceed and prescrutinize Form AOC-4/AOC-4 XBRL, the pre scrutiny of Form MGT-7 will be rejected as it contains different AGM date compared to date entered in the form being prescrutinised.

You will have to prescrutinise form MGT-7 again with the correct date (As mentioned in Form AOC-4/AOC-4 XBRL) for the same financial year.

Case II: Form MGT-7 already uploaded & Form AOC-4/AOC-4 XBRL is being uploaded

In case you have already uploaded pre-scrutinized Form MGT-7 with following dates:

• Financial Year- 31.03.2015

• Actual date of AGM- 31.10.2015

• Due date of AGM- 30.09.2015

At the time of uploading already pre-scrutinized Form AOC-4/AOC-4 XBRL with following dates:

• Financial Year- 31.03.2015

• Actual date of AGM- 30.09.2015

• Due date of AGM- 30.09.2015

System shall prompt you for discrepancy with a message that the AGM Date/Due AGM Date/Extended AGM Date filled in the form is different from that of filled in earlier uploaded annual filing form. Please do a revised filing of the same in order to file this form. Therefore, in this case you have to first do the revised filing of Form MGT-7 with the correct date (As entered in Form AOC-4/AOC-4 XBRL).

    I assume that a PCS can sign mgt-7 of all companies but certification is regarding mgt-8 for a certain cos

    Kindly guide


    • RAO K V says:

      Form MGT7-PARA XI- Relates with compliance or non-compliance. Form MGT8 is relating to compliance of events with or without adverse remark/s and no need to cover the matters not required to report.But in MGT7,the Annual Return being a report to stakeholders, requires the details of non-compliance.Both can not be blindly signed.It requires professional home work and has value for the same. one must understand this clearly.

  15. P.v.suubbarao says:

    Dear sir
    Regarding signing of mgt-7 hope a PCS can sign irrespective of paid up capital of the company but certification is for only certain companies in mgt 8 ,kindly correct me
