Requirement – MGT – 9 BIG QUESTION (?)
Requirement – MGT – 9
Since previous some days many professionals are confused in respect of one question i.e. “Whether MGT-9 is required to be preparing for F.y. 2017-18 or not”.
As per CA, 2013 section 134, Companies was required to prepare MGT-9 extract of Annual Return and such MGT-9 was required to file with Directors Report.
However, this provision has been amended by CAA, 2017 w.e.f. 31.7.2018 i.e. as per notification dated 31st July, 2017 provision in relation to MGT-9 has been removed from Section 134 and a new provision I added i.e. “the web address, if any, where Annual Return referred to in sub-section (3) of section 92 has been placed”.
Confusion: Section 134 is clear that extract of Annual Return has been removed from this section However; Section 92 is the reason behind confusions. Because, Section 92 read with rule 12 states that “The extract of the annual return to be attached with the Board’s Report shall be in Form No. MGT.9”
Now Following Questions Arise:
1) Whether Companies required preparing MGT-9 after 31st July, 2018?
2) Whether Companies are required to comply both Section 92 and Section 134?
3) While complying Section 134, MGT-9 required being published on website of Company or Annual Return i.e. MGT-7 required publishing on website of Company?
4) If Company doesn’t having website in such case whether MGT-9 required or not?
A. Whether Companies are required to prepare MGT-9?
B. Whether Companies are required to comply both Section 92 and Section 134?
As per second School of thought, Company is required to prepare MGT-9 because this is requirement under Section 92 read with rule 12.

 First thing we should focus that word “Extract of Annual Return” has been replaced by “Annual Return”, therefore, MGT-9 has been replaced by MGT-7.
