Process for INC-29 Registration

The following steps describe the procedure to get your company registered comprehensively yet easily.

1. Obtain your Digital Signature- The first step to file Form INC-29 is to obtain a digital signature of at least one Director of the company that is to be registered. The director will need to obtain a Class 2 Digital Signature.
A Digital Signature can be obtained by filling out the Digital Signature Form. You will also need a self-attested copy of your PAN Card and Address proof. 

2. Fill out Form INC-29- Form INC-29 shall be prepared by adhering to the following steps:-

  • Director DIN Number- If a Director of your Company already has a DIN, then the DIN can be entered into the form straightaway.
  • In case any of your Company’s Directors does not have a DIN, then the DIN Application can be made in the Form INC-29 itself- by submitting the following documents:-
  • General Information of the Director (Personal Details, Occupational Details, and Educational Details)
  • PAN Number
  • Passport Number (in case of the foreign national director)
  • Email address
  • Proof of Identity (Aadhar Card/Driver’s License/Voters ID)
  • Proof of Address (Bank Statement/ Electricity Bill)

3. Company Name- Form INC-29 permits the usage of only one name. Therefore, before filling out the name, it is advisable to go through the Guidelines for Naming a Company under the Companies Act. It is to be noted that if the name of the company does not adhere to any of the guidelines, or if it contravenes any provision of any law in force in India at the time, the application under Form INC-29 shall stand to be rejected.

4. Documents of Incorporation- Form INC-29 requires the Incorporation Documents to be attached with it at the time of filing. These documents also need to be signed by the Directors/Subscribers and attached with Form INC-29. The documents that are required in this step are:-

  • Memorandum of Association (MoA) and Articles of Association (AoA)
  • Affidavit and self-declaration by first subscribers and Directors
  • Proof of Registered Office Address (Rental Agreement/ Sale Deed)
  • Copy of Utility Bill of the Registered office. These Bills should not be older than 2 months.
  • If the name of the company has obtained a registered Trademark, then a No Objection Certificate (NOC) should be attached from the Trademark owner.

After completing the process, it will scrutinize the applicant's documents and information. If everything is in order, then the Certificate of Incorporation shall be issued within one week, or 8 to 9 working days. If any modifications may be required, the applicant will be notified about the same at the Registered email. If not, then the Director will receive the Digital Certificate.
