As per Section 120 the documents, records, registers, minutes may be kept and inspected in electronic form. As per Rule 27 of Companies (Management and Administration) Rules, 2014, it is mandatory for every listed company or a company having not less than one thousand share holders, debenture holders and other security holders, to maintain its records, as required to be maintained under the Act or rules made there under, in electronic form Existing companies shall convert their records from physical mode to electronic mode within six months from the date of notification of the provisions of Section 120 of the Act.

Dear Friend, as far as your query is concerned that Is it mandatory for a company to keep its documents, records, registers, minutes, etc. in electronic form? Let me informed that According to Section 120, the documents, records, registers, minutes, etc. may be kept and inspected in electronic form. Rule 27 of Companies (Management and Administration) Rules, 2014 initially mandated every listed company or a company having not less than one thousand share holders, debenture holders and other security holders to maintain its records, as required to be maintained under the Act or rules made there under, in electronic form. However, MCA has revised the rules namely the Companies (Management and Administration) Second Amendment Rules, 2014, and amended rule 27 as follows: - in rule 27, in sub-rule (1) and in the Explanation, for the word "shall", the word "may" shall be substituted. Therefore, the companies have now been given an option to maintain the records in electronic form. Hope answer was helpful to you Regards, Arjun Pratap Singh
