Practical Aspects of Amendment:

In the recent amendment Ministry has already decided to give it the name as great initiative for ease of doing business. We can divide the Key Features into two points i.e. Benefits V/s Drawbacks:

Benefits Drawback
SPICE+ would have two parts viz.:

Part A – for Name Reservation and Part B – offering a bouquet of Services (Above mentioned Services).

Part A- for Name reservation You have to mention the Business Activity Code and Proposed Object of the Company.

Sometimes users get confused, where to mention the object clause of the company. It is advisable to attach the separate file for proposed business activities of the company.

A new and user friendly Dashboard on the Front Office is being created for company incorporation application (SPICe+ and linked forms as applicable). User faces the session time out issues. We have to keep the entire attachments ready before using the web services.
