Registration of NGO - Section 8 Company

If a Section 8 company is about to get incorporated as a private limited company, you need two directors, and if the company is to be incorporated as a public limited company, three directors are required. In a private limited company, the maximum number of members is 200, although there is no limit for a public limited company.

Requirements for the registration process

  1. Digital Signature Certificate
  • Because the forms for the registration process are filed online and should be digitally signed, the prospective directors’ digital signatures are necessary. Government-approved certifying agencies issue digital signature certificates (DSC). You must obtain a Class 3 category DSC.

    2. Director Identification Number (DIN)

  • You must apply for a DIN for the company’s proposed directors. The application for a DIN must get submitted in Form DIR-3 or conjunction with the SPICe+ registration form. Along with the form, you must include a scanned copy of the required documents, such as a self-attested copy of PAN, Identity and Address proof of directors, and submit it online through the MCA Portal. A practicing professional, such as a chartered accountant, a company secretary, or a cost accountant, must attest to the form.

Procedure for incorporating a Section 8 Company

  1. Obtain a DSC of the proposed Section 8 Company Directors. After receiving a DSC, submit Form DIR-3 to the ROC to obtain a DIN. The Proof of Identity and Address Proof needs to get attached for obtaining DSC.
  2. The ROC will assign a DIN to the recommended directors after the DIR-3 is authorized.
  3. To apply for a license for a Section 8 corporation, submit the INC-12 Form with the ROC and all the relevant documents listed above.
  4. A license under section 8 will be issued in Form INC-16 once the Form is authorized.
  5. After acquiring the license, submit the SPICe+ Form with the relevant attachments to the ROC for incorporation.


If the ROC is happy with the information provided on the forms, he will issue a Certificate of Incorporation and a unique Company Identification Number (CIN).
