The Process

The four major steps in obtaining a company registration certificate are as follows.You 

Step 1 –  You must first obtain a digital signature certificate (DSC)

DSCs (Digital Signature Certificates) are digital versions of physical or paper certificates. It's a form of identification. It can be used to access online information or services, as well as to digitally sign specific papers.

If you don't already have one, contact our specialists right immediately! If you already have one, make sure to double-check its validity before continuing.

Step 2 – Make arrangements to obtain the director's identity number (DIN)

Any person who wishes to become a director of a company must apply for a Director Identification Number via the SPICe+ form at the time of incorporation.

Step 3  – Following the preceding step, you must complete the SPICe+ (INC 32) and INC 35 (AGILE PRO) registration forms.

This level entails a number of difficult and time-consuming steps. There is no space for error, since errors on your incorporation paperwork can be quite costly to your new business. This is why we advise you to enlist the assistance of our incorporation team.

Step 4- Pay the incorporation fee. 

Send a physical copy of the company's Memorandum and Articles of Association to the RoC after paying the required filing and registration costs.

The RoC issues the firm registration certificate after verifying the information and paperwork provided.

After incorporation, in the case of a public limited company,

  • In lieu of the prospectus, file an eForm 20 declaration and attach the statement (schedule III)


  • Fill out an eForm 19 declaration and attach the prospectus (Schedule II).

After you've successfully filed, you'll be able to get your certificate of business start-up.
