Form PAS-6 is a half-yearly ‘Reconciliation of Share Capital Audit Report’ form. It needs to be submitted by the unlisted public companies to the Registrar of Companies (ROC). The main objective of Form PAS-6 is to report the details and changes in the share capital of companies on a half-yearly basis. It needs to be certified by a practising Company Secretary (CS) or a Chartered Accountant (CA). 

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) introduced Form PAS-6 through a notification dated 10th September 2018. In this notification, the MCA inserted Rule 9A (sub-rule 8) to the Companies (Prospectus and Allotment of Securities), Rules, 2014 through the Companies (Prospectus and Allotment of Securities) Third Amendment Rules, 2019. It provides for the issue of securities only in dematerialised form by unlisted public companies from 2nd October 2018.

Form PAS-6 applies to all unlisted public companies that issue shares in accordance with Rule 9A of the Companies (Prospectus and Allotment of Securities) Third Amendment Rules, 2019. However, the following unlisted public companies need not file from PAS-6:
