To avoid such a situation, an effort has been made to lay down step by step procedure for registration or incorporation of one person company in India. The steps are as follows:

Herein, the applicant has to login to the MCA portal and click on RUN Form in MCA Services tab. This is the foremost form to be submitted with ROC for reservation of name of the proposed one person company. Under the RUN form, following information to be inserted:

  • (i) Entity type (OPC, Private, Public, Section 8);
