Hi, does the site also tell us about the private companies? I am trying to find one which has the certificate of registration but could not find in MCA, any guidance
Hi Rohan, the MCA website has the details of all companies incorporated in India, be it public or private. So if you weren’t able to find the details of a company on there, it likely means that the company is not registered in India. Hope this helps!
