Simply put, the registration date is the date on which the legal process of forming the company under the MCA was started. The date on which the company began its operations upon the confirmation of its legal existence is known as the incorporation date.

Authorized capital refers to the maximum value of shares that are legally authorized to be issued in favour of the shareholders. Paid-up capital is the amount paid by the shareholders to the company. Hence, paid-up capital can be equal to or less than the authorized capital but never more than it under any circumstances.
