One response to “MCA lays down the the rules for filing documents and forms in XBRL”

  1. Throughout this great pattern of things you’ll secure an A+ just for effort. Exactly where you misplaced us was first in your facts. As they say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be more true in this article. Having said that, allow me say to you exactly what did work. The writing can be highly convincing and that is most likely why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, while I can notice a jumps in logic you make, I am not certain of just how you appear to connect your ideas that produce the actual final result. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however wish in the future you link the dots much better.
