To understand Csmart, its best if we understand the issues faced by a Company Professional’s office first.

Issues faced by a Company Professional’s office

  • No Document Management System

Company Documents maintained by Company Professionals are often not organised and tend to be easily lost. In an office with many people working, documents are placed in different folders and lots of time is spent in searching and retrieving these documents.

  • Repetitive drafting of similar documents

Fill up Eforms or drafting documents such as Minutes, Notices, Letters, various EForm attachments needs to done time and again. The task is very repetitive and mundane, hence is time consuming and error prone.

  • Maintaining statutory registers

Registers such as Member’s Register (Form MGT-1), Director Register, Charge Register (Form CHG-7), etc. need to be painstakingly maintained for every Company; which again is error prone and repetitive.

Company Information Retrieval

For questions such as:

Csmart Logo
  • When was the capital changed?
  • Is the annual filing done?
  • When did this director resign?
  • When was the share transfer effectuated?
  • How many shares does this shareholder hold?
  • What is the SRN of this form that was filed?


One has to dig through files and folder either in physical cabinets or in a computer’s hard drive. In a better maintained office most often an excel sheet is maintained with all kinds of information, hopefully the excel sheet is maintained and updated on a regular basis.

How does Csmart Help?

  • Csmart is a Document Management System

Csmart stores documents neatly into company specific folders. Csmart manages the folders and the user only interacts with the Csmart UI to access files. Hence searching and retrieving any document is made easy. All computers in the office are networked to read and write to a shared folder and database ensuring that everyone works with the same copy of the document.

  • Csmart generates documents

Csmart ships with a vast set of ‘templatised’ documents. These documents are retrofitted with data specific to Companies and certain user input to generate documents easily. Some of these templates can also be customised by the user. This removes the repetitive nature of drafting these documents, and at the same time guarantees its correctness. Fields in an Eform for which prior data exists in Csmart is populated automatically eliminating the need to repetitively fill up the same fields time and again.

  • Csmart maintains Statutory Registers

Registers have to be updated as and when an event happens such as a Share Transfer or Allotment. If the user performs the event in Csmart, then the registers are automatically updated. This means that there is no work that a user has to additionally do to maintain a Company’s registers. Registers are generated as digitally signed PDF documents. As per Companies Act, 2013 Section 120, all registers can be held in the digital manner alone, thus simplifying maintenance of registers.

How does Csmart Help?

With Csmart, information is at your fingertips. All those questions for which you had dig through files and folders is now shown to you with a click of your mouse.

Csmart maintains and builds an extended Master Data, from the information it collects when you file forms or interact with Csmart such as transferring a share certificate.

So how does it work?

Take for example, when you incorporate a company, you file a Form INC-1, Form INC-7, Form INC-22 and Form DIR-12 (Companies Act, 2013). Csmart captures data from all these forms as and when they are filed. It captures capital and promoter information from Form 1NC-7, address from Form INC-22 and the Director information from Form DIR-12. It stores this information in its database.

It also generates all the attachments needed to file the incorporation forms.

From this point on, where ever you need this information, such as filling up other E-Forms, or any document that Csmart generates, this information will be automatically filled up for you.

So when you file a Form PAS-3 (Return of Allotment), once you tell Csmart who your list of allottees are, Csmart will fill up the form, generate Minutes and Notices, Share Certificates, Form MGT-1 (Member Register), the Director Register and even generates your list of allottees form attachment for you.

Csmart is installed locally on your computer. Its a desktop software. Data resides on your system.
