One thought on “New MCA form for Company registration- SPICe+

  1. Hello, as per the original notification, the SPICe+ form was dues to be launched on Feb 15th. It is still not out it seems. Am I right? And, if yes, by when are we expecting it to be out?

    Also, how long will the company incorporation formalities take with the SPICe+ form (realistically speaking, not the ideal)?
