Every business in India must be registered with the government of India. All information pertaining to the Companies registered with the government are available on the Ministry of Corporate Affairs database. The Companies registered with the government are allotted a Company Incorporation Number (CIN).
If any Company claims to be a registered Company, it can be verified by searching the Company name or the provided Company Incorporation Number in the Ministry of Corporate Affairs database. If the Company details are found in the database, you can be sure that the Company is a registered Company.
Only Limited Liability Partnership, Private Limited Company and Public Limited Company statuses can be obtained using the Ministry of Corporate Affairs website. Status of entities registered as Sole Proprietorship or Partnership firm cannot be obtained through Ministry of Corporate Affairs database.
