Register a Company
Registrars of Companies (ROC) appointed under Section 609 of the Companies Act covering the various States and Union Territories, are vested with the primary duty of registering companies floated in the respective States and Union Territories and of ensuring that such companies comply with statutory requirements under the Act. These offices function as registries of records relating to the companies registered with them, which are available for inspection by members of the public on payment of the prescribed fee.
The Registrars of Companies in different States primarily deal with the Incorporation of companies, change of name of companies, change of financial year, conversion of companies from Private to Public and vice versa, striking off of the names of companies, and default action against companies.
The steps to be followed for registering a private limited or a public limited company are enlisted here.
Steps to be taken to get incorporated a private limited Company:
- Select, in order of preference, a few suitable names, not less than four, indicative of the main objects of the company.
- Ensure that the name does not resemble the name of any other company already registered and also does not violate the provisions of Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper Use) Act, 1950.
- Apply to the concerned ROC to ascertain the availability of a name in Form-1 A (ZIP - 109KB)
