Nidhi Company Registration in Guwahati

Nidhi company registration in India is governed by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, the Companies Act, 2013 and the Companies Incorporation Rules, 2014. To register a Nidhi company, a minimum of seven shareholders and three directors are required. A natural person can be both a director and shareholder, while a corporate legal entity can only be a shareholder. Further, foreign nationals, foreign corporate entities or NRIs are allowed to be Directors and/or Shareholders of a Company with Foreign Direct Investment, making it the preferred choice of entity for foreign promoters.

A Nidhi company closely resembles to a NBFC, however under a Nidhi Company deposits may be accepted from a closed group of persons only called members of the Nidhi Company. A Nidhi Company is formed to borrow and lend to its members with an objective to promote the habit of saving money among its members and works on the principle of mutual help. Unlike an NBFC a Nidhi Company is not required to obtain a license from RBI, hence it is easy to incorporate.

Secondly within one year of its incorporation, when the number of shareholders has reached 200 then a separate application is filed before the ROC for grant of Nidhi Company Status. The Company cannot advertise asking for deposits from the public at large and shall keep its borrowing and advance activities to and from among its members.
