MCA has vide its notification dated 7th June, 2021 allowed for registration under shops & establishment act of various states in the same incorporation document as before i.e. SpiCe B+ in Agile Pro. Now in place of Agile Pro form, Agile Pro S form shall be substituted.
Under a single window concept, MCA allows incorporation of a company while at the same time granting tax registrations (PAN/ TAN) GST (if required), Professional tax (depends on the state), PF/ ESIC (mandatory but registration is only for name sake, no returns to be filed until the unit crosses the employee threshold as provides in these statutes), Bank a/c (for a few select banks) and now Shops & Establishment act.
Shops & Establishment act is applicable only for commercial entities employees x number of persons in their unit. It is a local body requirement like from the respectively municipality. Addition of this registration into the MCA portal is a welcome move.
The MCA circular is available at the MCA site.
