MCA21 woes: Corp Affairs Ministry may deduct payments to Infosys
With problems continuing in using the MCA21 portal, the Corporate Affairs Ministry might deduct payments to IT major Infosys, which expects the situation to be normal in the next few weeks. Infosys, which is managing MCA21, has been facing flak from different quarters on the woes pertaining to the portal, which is used by stakeholders to make electronic filings under the Companies Act. Sources said problems being faced in using the portal after its upgradation last month are being sorted out and would take some more time. There are provisions for deducting payments that are due to Infosys with regard to managing the portal in case there are problems and the ministry might look at that also, sources added. The system was upgraded to SAP platform and went live on March 27, and since then, there have been some glitches such as difficulty in uploading documents. "We will continue to monitor the situation and work closely with the ministry. We expect the situation to come back to normal in the next few weeks," an Infosys spokesperson said in an e-mailed statement.
