​Registration of Public Limited Companies in India

If you intend to obtain funds from the public through an initial public offering ("IPO"), a public limited company should be your preferred company structure in India because public limited businesses have been granted special access to the capital market under the Securities Laws.

​Why are public limited companies preferred?

In India, public limited companies are seen as a more transparent corporate form than other business models. It allows investors to sell their shares and transfer their ownership in the company without any problems.

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) goes to India's public limited companies because foreign exchange laws make it possible for them to get loans and equity participation from abroad.


Characteristics that can be found in a public limited company

  Structure Flexibility

A public limited company has the most flexible structure of all the company types. It gives a lot of space between operations and ownership.

  Ownership of Stocks

A public company can offer ESOPS or stock ownership to its employees. Only limited companies can offer this feature of giving their stocks to current and potential employees.


  Stock Exchange Listing

Shares can only be listed on Indian stock exchanges like the National Stock Exchange (NSE), Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), and others by public limited companies. So, anyone can invest in the company by buying its stocks.
