As of now there is a requirement to file Form 8 under the Companies Act for creation or modification of charge u/s. 125-128. Does the filing of equitable mortgage before this Registry in any way affect this requirement for ROC filing or registration under the Registration Act, 1918?
The Central Registration system established under the SARFAESI act is in addition to and supplemental to other registration system already in operation under other laws such as the Companies Act 1956 or Registration Act, 1918. The registration under the SARFAESI Act does not in any way affect or change the requirement of registration under other laws. Please refer to sub-section (4) of section 20 of the SARFAESI Act.
