Frequently Asked Questions

What is CIN?

The Corporate Identification Number (CIN) is a 21 digits alpha-numeric code issued to companies on being registered by the Registrar of Companies (ROCs) situated in different states across India under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA). The CIN is the unique identification number of a company and must be entered in all the forms required to be filed by the company on the MCA portal.

What is ROC?

The Registrar of Companies ( ROC ) is an office under the MCA, which deals with the administration of companies in India. The  Registrar of Companies (ROCs) is operating in all the major states/UT’s. The ROCs register companies across the states and the UTs, maintain a registry of records concerning companies that are registered with them and allow the general public to access this information on payment of a stipulated fee.

What are assets under charge?

A charge means a right or interest obtained by a creditor or lender in the property of the company by way of security that the company will pay back the debt. A company’s borrowings are backed by securities, on the strength of which loans are given to them by the banks and financial institutions. Assets under charge are the assets of the company upon which a charge is created for the company’s borrowing.

Every company creating or modifying a charge on its property or assets should register the particulars of charge with the ROC within 30 days of such creation. The company registration search provides the details of the assets under the charge of the company registered with the ROC.

What is DIN?

DIN or Director Identification Number is a unique Identification Number allotted to the person appointed as a director of a company. A DIN can be acquired by filling the SPICe form at the time of incorporation of the company.

What is the SPICe+ form?

The Simplified Proforma for Incorporating Company Electronically or SPICe+ helps incorporate a company with a single application for:

  • The reservation of name;
  • Application for allotment of DIN;
  • Incorporation of a new company; and
  • Allotment of PAN and TAN.

The form integrates many steps that were earlier individual forms into a single process and makes the company formation process time-efficient.

What is DSC? Is it mandatory to file the SPICe+ (INC-32) and RUN?

DSC refers to a Digital Signature Certificate. It must be obtained from a certifying agency that has been recognized by the government. Since the registration process is now online, all the forms require a valid DSC. The cost of DSC acquisition may vary, largely depending on the certifying agency that it may be purchased from. To file a SPICe+ (INC – 32) form, you need to have a DSC, however, for accessing the RUN and filing you do not require a DSC.

What is RUN?

Reservation of name or RUN is a web service used for reserving a name for a new company or to change the name for any existing company. However, from 23rd February 2020, the name of the company needs to be reserved in the SPICe+ form. RUN service is used to change the name of the company.
