Removal of Company Name from Register of Companies by Registrar
The MCA in December, 2016 brought to force Section 248 to 252 of the Companies Act, 2013 to lay the foundation for removal of company name from Register of Companies. As per Section 248 to 252, the Registrar of Companies has the following powers to remove name of company from the register of companies, if the Registrar has reasonable cause to believe that:

  • The company has failed to commence its business within one year of its incorporation;
  • The company is not carrying on any business or operation for a period of two immediately preceding financial years and has not made any application for obtaining the status of a dormant company.

If such is the case, the Registrar can remove the name of the company from the register of companies by sending a notice to the company and all the directors of the company. The notice from ROC would present the ROC’s intention to remove the name of the company from the register of companies and request the company to send representations along with copies of the relevant documents, if any, within a period of thirty days from the date of the notice.
Closing of Company by Filing Form STK-2
After filing of Form STK-2 by the company, the Registrar has the powers and duty to satisfy him/herself that sufficient provision has been made for the realisation of all amounts due to the company and for the payment or discharge of its liabilities and obligations by the company within a reasonable time. If necessary, the ROC can also obtain necessary undertakings from the managing director, director or other persons in charge of the management of the company.

On completion of the above formalities, the ROC would cause a public notice to be issued regarding the intended closure of the company. After expiry of the time mentioned in the notice, the Registrar can, strike off its name from the register of companies, and publish notice of striking-off of name of company in the Official Gazette. On publication in the Official Gazette of this notice, the company is held to be dissolved.
