How to Register a Private Limited company in India


A private limited company is a business entity that allows you to raise money, issue shares and set up your own corporate identity. In India, there are several advantages of setting up a private limited company (PLC). These include tax benefits, easier bank loans and being able to compete with large companies who are not allowed by law to operate without corporate status.

What is Private Limited Company?

A Private Limited Company is a company that can be run and managed by a single person or group of people. It is distinct from a Public Limited Company as it provides limited liability, whereas in case of public limited companies, there is no such provision available to its shareholders.

The main purpose behind forming such companies is to ensure that only one person will own the shares in these firms and no one else can get access to them through transfer or sale of shares. The main advantage of forming a private limited company over other types of business entities lies in their flexibility and managerial freedom which lets you select your own employees, set up administration procedures etc., according to your requirements

Who can form a Private Limited Company?

You can form a private limited company by yourself, on behalf of another person or as an agent.

  • An individual: If you are 18 years old or above and have been living in India for at least six months, then it is possible to form your own private limited company. This means that you do not require any prior consent from the government or any other organization before starting up your own business. However, if you’re still studying at school or college, then this option may not be available to you because of certain restrictions imposed by law (e.g., education).
  • A partnership: Partnerships are formed when two individuals decide to work together towards achieving common goals and objectives; these partnerships can be formed by both individuals acting individually or jointly through a written agreement called partnership deed which states how much money each partner owes towards their shareholding percentage within the company itself (this will depend on how much capital has been invested into it).
