This has been a long pending post. This is just a summary of what it takes to register a company In India. I thought this post might help you get a rough idea. This whole process will take close to 20-45 days months. Get Director Identification Number (DIN) online Get a Digital Signature Certificate Reserve the company name with the Registrar of Companies (ROC) - You are requested to submit four names and based on availability you are allotted one of them Pay stamp duties, file all incorporation forms and documents - Thereby you obtain the certificate of incorporation Obtain Certificate to Commence Operation Obtain a Permanent Account Number (PAN) from National Securities Depository Services Limited (NSDL) Register with Employees' Provident Fund Organization if your employee strength is more than 15 Register for professional tax If you are selling product then you might have to go for VAT registration.
