MCA-21 is the first e-governance initiative from Government of India executed in the year 2006. MCA-21 had experienced much overhauling procedures during the last 13 years.

In May 2019, Government of India had announced that the Ministry of Corporate Affairs is planning towards implementing a Version 3 for ease of doing the procedure.

Version 3 would make easier the procedure of filing details as a single source of truth would make certain that common information shall automatically get updated over various forms. Secondly, the entire e-adjudication procedure would go online. This shall make certain that nobody is required to go to an RoC. Everything would be on the front-end where entire e-adjudication as well as then online compliance monitoring shall be done. So if anybody is not complying with the law, e-notice would automatically get generated and reach to the individual.
