In continuous endeavour to serve the stakeholders better, the Ministry of Corporate Affairs announced launch of V3 platform on 1st Feb 2022. The V3 portal is an upgraded version of the current V2 version. The key difference between Version 2 & Version 3 as mentioned below:
- In V2 the company incorporation, charge creation, modification, director & KMP change, address change and other eforms where made available in PDF file format.
- Users use to download the form in PDF format, fill and upload them in V2
- In V3, MCA is trying to replace the PDF forms with Webforms
- All LLP Forms are migrated to V3
- 65 Company forms have been moved to V3 platform
- List of 56 Forms that are notified to be migrated to V3 by 23 Jan 2023
- Eventually all the modules of V2 including View Public Document Service will be migrated to V3
- However as on the date of this post VPD is still not migrated to V3 Platform
The Impact of V3 migration in VPD Service:
Any registered user can pay a nominal fee to MCA and download various documents filed by the any OPC, LLP, Private & Public Company from the MCA website. As some of the documents are already migrated to V3 and some are pending. VDP service is also only at V2 and yet to be migrated, as of now only the documents that are filed in V2 by the respective company are made available by MCA to be downloaded. All the forms that were migrated to V3 are not accessible under V2.
Hence, when you avail the InstaDocs service on InstaFinancials platform the documents that are made available under VPD are only delivered to you. Which means, you can expect only those forms that are filed in V2 portal. The forms that were filed in V3 will not be made available.
Please kindly refer to MCA.GOV.IN website for the full list of forms that are migrated to V3 or planned to be migrated to V3.
