4. What are the “key” changes between V2 and V3?

  • Version 2 forms must be completed and uploaded to the site, whereas Version 3 forms must be completed online.

  • This makes it convenient for users, who can save forms that are only partially completed.

  • In Version 2, there was simply a My Workspace that had a list of Ministry of Corporate Affairs alerts and circulars.

  • There is a customized “My Application” functionality in Version 3.

  • It enables users to view any forms they have submitted, together with information on how they are being processed, such as if they need to pay fees or submit them again.

  • In contrast to V2, when the user id was required for login, V3 requires the user’s email address.

  • An OTP will be issued to your email and mobile device when a business user has logged into the Ministry of Corporate Affairs system to verify the user’s identity.


5. Who is a Business User in V3?

  • Company/Limited Liability Partnership (LLP)

  • Director/Designated Partner

  • Manager/Secretary/Authorized Representative

  • Officer in Default

  • Professional


6. Do I need to re-register if I am an existing user?

No, you don’t need to register again if you already have an account with V2. In fact, the system will recognize the mail ID you provide as a duplicate ID and prevent further registration. However, if you try to register using a new email address that wasn’t in V2, a new user will be created for you. It is best to prevent such registrations in V3 when a user is already registered in V2.
