The documents, as listed in the next section should be readied before starting the registration process. This includes a registered office address with documentary proof.
All document submissions are done electronically and hence every company must obtain a Digital Signature Certificate (or DSC), which is used to verify the authenticity of the documents. It usually takes two days to get the DSC from the time of submission of documents.
It is mandatory for every private limited company to use the suffix “Private Limited” at the end of its name. A minimum of one and a maximum of two proposed names must be submitted to the MCA. Subject to availability, naming guidelines and MCA processing time, name approval can be obtained in 2 to 3 working days. The name for approval should not resemble with any other company’s name. It is to be noted that the company name need not be the same as the brand name.
Registration documents can be submitted to the MCA along with an application for registration. MCA will usually approve the application for incorporation in 5 to 7 days, subject to their processing time.
