This was a long-standing demand to have less compliance for one person and small companies. Rule 8A introduced with effect from 31st July 2018 by the Companies (Accounts) Amendment Rules 2018. Let us discuss.
On 5th June 2015, Ministry of Corporate Affairs posted here a draft notification to be published in Official Gazette announcing some exemption to Private Companies.
As there is no effective date is announced in the Notification, this notification shall come into effect on the date of its publication in the Official Gazette.
[UPDATE 20th June 2015: MCA uploaded copy of Official Gazette dated 5th June 2015, in which this Notification is published. Meaning that; These exemption came into force from that date]
The Notification is issued in exercise of power conferred by Clauses (a) and (b) of Sub – section (1) of 462 read with sub –section (2) of said section of the Companies Act, 2013. A copy of this notification has been laid in draft before both Houses of Parliament as required by sub-section (2) of section 462 of the Companies Act, 2013.
Paragraph 2 of the Notification cast a condition on the Private Companies:
UPDATE: on 30th August 2013: Companies Bill 2012 became the Companies Act, 2013 (Act 18 of 2013).

Here, I try to study briefly some definitions related to companies under present Bill [Now the Companies Act, 2013]. Readers may please add their inputs in comment section of this post.
