Private Limited Company is the most common and popular type of corporate legal entity in India. It is a privately held entity in which the owner’s liability is limited to their shares.

The Private limited company registration is governed by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Companies Act, 2013 and the Companies Incorporation Rules, 2014.

A Private limited company should have a minimum of 2 and maximum of 200 shareholders and directors. Any person can be both either Director or shareholder. The Private Limited entity type does n’t allow trading shares to the general public.

A Private limited company can raise the funds from foreign nationals, NRI’s, foreign direct investor.  It also issues equity shares, debentures with RBI permission. A private limited company’s disclosure requirements are lighter, but its shares may not be offered to the general public and therefore cannot be traded on a public stock exchange.
