Private Limited Company

In India, a private limited company is regulated by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). It is simple to register a company with SRCC since everything is done online. A minimum of two persons must act as directors and shareholders in order to form a business in India. To create a private limited company in India, you’ll need the director’s PAN card, address evidence, and bank statement, as well as the registered office’s address proof.

A private company is defined under Section 2 (68) of the Companies Act, 2013 as “a company with a minimum paid-up share capital as may be stipulated, and which by its articles,

restricts the right to transfer the company’s shares; save in the event of a one-person business, limits the number of members to two hundred; bans any public solicitation to subscribe to the company’s stocks.

It is strongly recommended that you register a private limited company since this form of business allows you to minimise your responsibility as a shareholder while also limiting your ownership options.

In India, the requirements for forming a private limited company are as follows:

The number of shareholders is two.

2)There are two persons on the board of directors. (It might be 3)

3)Minimum authorised capital of Rs. 1 lakh

4)Rs. 10,000 in paid-up capital

NOTE: This is only a minimum requirement; the number of directors and shareholders can be increased to 15 and 200, respectively.
