The CoA has mentioned in its eighth Status Report that it has received representations from aggrieved members who do not have the wherewithal to approach the Bombay High Court. The CoA has also told the Supreme Court that the MCA has no intention of implementing the Lodha reforms and the affidavit filed  in the apex court was done only for the purposes of disbursement of accessing funds which would not otherwise have been available to the MCA.

"The actions of those who attended the SGM of the MCA held on April 7, 2018 and voted in favour of  adopting the Amended Constitution are a flagrant violation of the the resolution/undertaking filed in this Hon’ble Court vide affidavit dated  December 29, 2017 and  ought to be regarded as contempt," the Status Report of CoA stated.

The Supreme Court is likely to hear the matter on Tuesday.
