Clarification Regarding Online Generation of Challans for Offline Payment Cases

In terms of Investors Education and Protection Fund (Accounting, Audit, Transfer and Refund) Rules, 2016 as notified on 05.09.2016, and as per the prerequisites of e-form IEPF-1, the companies are required to transfer the amounts to Investor Education and Protection Fund (IEPF) through Challans generated on MCA 21 portal. Attention is also drawn to Circular No. 13/2016 dated 05.12.2016 issued by this office, communicating that Challans which are not generated on MCA 21 portal will not be accepted after 15.12.2016. 

However it has been noticed that there are companies, which have transferred the amount to IEPF prior to 15.12.2016, through Challans not generated on MCA-21 portal and these companies were/are unable to file IEPF-1.
