Answer 1.Form 44 must be filed within the 30 days from the date of approval given by the RBI in the Delhi ROC and if your office situated in some other state as well then the concerned ROC of that state must also given the copy.Late fee you can be calculated according to the date given on the RBI's approval while login to the MCA in the fee calculation section.

Answer 2.Form 52.Non filing can attract the monetary penalty on the company.

Answer 3.No specific form prescribed for for filing closure documents.Yes,closure clearance must be there from the ROC.
