The change to the certificate of incorporation of a company has been enacted by the Companies (Incorporation) Second Amendment Rules,2016. As per the Companies (Incorporation) Second Amendment Rules, 2016, the new incorporation certificate would be as under:

New Certificate of Incorporation
New Certificate of Incorporation

The change in the new certificate of incorporation is the change of the name of the ROC approving the incorporation and the jurisdiction. Under the old certificate of incorporation, the respective Registrar of Companies in the State would approve a company registration under his/her authority. Under the new method, the Certificate of Incorporation of a company would be issued by the Registrar of Companies, Central Registration Centre.

Review of the New Process

Under the old incorporation method, company incorporation time used to vary from State to State based on the workload of the respective Registrar of Companies in that state. Under the new Central Registration Centre, all company incorporation across India would be centralised, leading to quick turnaround times and a transparent process.
