As per the Companies Act (Amendment) Bill, 2017
Under Section- 92 (Filing of Annual Return) Companies shall be required to file the Annual Return within 60 days of AGM. Now, the additional time period of 270 days provided under Section-403 for filing of annual return is removed from this section.
The same amendment is there for filing of financial statements also under Section-137 and they shall be filed within 30 days of AGM (additional time period has been removed)
