As per the date mentioned in the Certificate of Company Incorporation, the Registrar will allot a Corporate Identity Number (CIN) to the newly formed Company. This CIN ensures a distinct identity for the Company, which will be included in the certificate.

Also, the new incorporation has to maintain copies of all documents and information originals at its registered office till its dissolution.


Submission of False Information to the Registrar for Company Registration

Suppose a person furnishes any false particulars of any information or suppresses any information he is aware of in the documents filed with the Registrar for Company Registration, then he will be liable for the necessary disciplinary actions under section 447.

Suppose after the Company's incorporation, the Registrar finds out that the Company has been incorporated by furnishing false information.  Or the applicant is suppressing any material fact in the filed declaration. In that case, the promoters, first directors and the persons making such declarations will be liable for legal action under section 447.


Tribunal's Action for Incorrect Information submission to the Registrar

Furthermore, to deal with the submission of the incorrect details, the Tribunal will, on an application made to it, issue warrants against the perpetrators. The Tribunal may take any of the following disciplinary action:

  • Pass an order for regulation of the company management. It includes changes in its Memorandum and Articles of Association. Such changes are in the general public or Company's interest, keeping in mind its members and creditors
  • Direct the member's liability to be unlimited towards the Company
  • Direct removal of the Company's name from the Register of Companies
  • Pass an order to wind up the accused Company
