The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), India mandated annual filings by companies to be submitted electronically via XBRL in 2011. The first year of MCA XBRL filings had its own uncertainties since it was a new concept. The next two years witnessed an evolved filing community, increased scope of filing, introduction of new Schedule VI of Companies Act, 1956 and changes in the underlying XBRL taxonomy. The MCA has already taken up taxonomy development for the new sectors. This white paper studies the MCA's XBRL journey and what filers can expect in the near future.
