The government's e-governance programme MCA21 for Indian corporates is set for a revamp. In a bid to counter the increasing risks of corporate frauds, the ministry of corporate affairs is working on the next-generation version of the e-governance programme. Corporate affairs minister Veerappa Moily has said that bids for the second phase of MCA21 have been already called for. The decision on the same will be taken soon. As per a leading daily, major IT companies such as Infosys, Wipro and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) are vying for this prestigious project. It must be noted that the MCA21 programme was commenced in 2006. The main highlight of the e-governance programme was initiate adoption of secure electronic filing (e-Filing) for all the services provided by the Registrar of Companies (ROC), including incorporation of a company, annual filing, registration of charges and other event-based filings.
