An authorised person who is having a DSC, but who has not registered it with MCA, even though he will be able to sign the e-forms but will not be able to submit the same in MCA while uploading.

    Hi ! Under MCA Portal one can sign up ,either as a Registered User (Individual) or Business User( Director/ CA/CA/CMA), now I am confused that to Upload any Form(Let say MGT-7/AOC-4) then login through DSC of director is mandatory for that company or registered user can also upload it , if DSC of Director /Professional are associated with ROC ? If answer is Yes (By Regd. User also) , then what's the use of login througb DSC by Director/ CA/CS .... Please solve this confusion .

    1. Two things:

      Firstly: Whether you are registered as a "Registered User" or "Business User" at MCA for filing forms, both ways filing process is same. In both cases, forms have to be filled in fully and DSC of a Director and DSC of Practising Professionals will be affixed in such forms and then uploaded at MCA after login.

      For this purpose, DSC of Director or Practising Professionals are associated at MCA site in advance (Check MCA site >> MCA Services >> DSC Services >> Associate DSC). This is a one time process and is valid till the expiry of DSC.

      Secondly: If you are registered as "Business User", the log in through DSC is an additional verification step to ensure that the forms are uploaded by you and not by someone who is just using your name at MCA site as a Registered User to upload the forms to MCA. It is just a security measure to avoid misuse of name. This is what I am guessing the MCA might have thought of.
