All About Section 8 Company Registration: Documents: Registration Process, Members

As one of the largest markets in the world, India has a vast trade and commercial domain. However making profits through trade and commerce is not the only factor which is prominent in the Indian market. India as a huge country lacks behind in sectors like education, employment, health care, food, and safety, etc.

Our government is under a lot of pressure to ameliorate the conditions within the national legislation. However, due to many factors, the central government cannot address each and every issue simultaneously and this creates a space for specific organizations which assist the government working for the well-being of society. Such organizations are known as non profit organizations or non- government organizations.

Widely known as Section-8 companies, these organizations are registered under the Section-8 of Companies Act 2013. These companies intend to promote art, commerce, sports, safety, science, research, healthcare, social welfare, religion, protection of the environment, etc. The main object of these companies ensure the promotion of above-mentioned fields, provided the profit is used for promoting only objects of the company (Sec 8(1)(b)). Sec 8 (1) (c) states the prohibition of payment of any dividend to its members. Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA), administers and maintains the rules and regulations through ROC in all of the states of India. The procedure for Section 8 Company’s formation is as follows:
