The Ministry of Corporate Affairs on 4th March 2015 has issued clarifications relating to filing of e-form DIR-11 & DIR-12 under the Companies Act, 2013.

The text of the same is re-produced as below:

This  Ministry  has received  several   representations about  the  difficulties faced by stakeholders due to deactivation of Digital Signature Certificate (DSC) following en masse resignation of all the  directors of a company before  appointment  of new directors in their places. The  difficulty  arises  because  of automatic   deactivation   of DSC on filing  of DlR-11 (Notice  of resignation   of a director   to the Registrar)  by the resigned/resigning Director(s), and none of the new   Director’s  details   having   been   filed.  As  a result, form DIR-12 (Particulars   of appointment  of directors  and  the key managerial  personnel   and the changes among  them) cannot be filed by a company due to lack of an authorized   signatory  Director.

  In order  to enable  the  filing of such  E-forms  and till  an alternative   mechanism   is  put in place in  MCA-21 system, it   is  clarified that  the Registrar of Companies  within their respective jurisdictions are authorized,  on  request   from the  stakeholders,  and  after due examination, to allow  any one of the resigned   director   who was an authorized   signatory Director  for the purpose  of filing  DIR-12 only  along  with  additional   fees, as applicable   and subject  to compliance   of other  provisions   of Companies  Act,  2013
