Thereby, Section 8 Companies can be incorporated by either reserving names through RUN and filing SPICe thereafter or by directly filing SPICe. License No.for a section 8 company shall henceforth be allotted at the time of incorporation itself.
All pending INC-12 SRNs with respect to the above points for new Companies pending at respective RoCs would be marked as ‘Rejected’ on 15th August 2019. Such applicants may thereafter directly file SPICe for obtaining License Number and for the incorporation of Section 8 Companies.
Stakeholders who have already obtained License Numbers and are yet to file SPICe may do so at their convenience but may note that the forms shall be processed only after a certain time lag to allow for workflow changes to take effect.
Stakeholders, who have already filed SPICe forms and are pending at CRC, may kindly wait for the processing of these forms after the workflow changes take effect.
