Re-submission or refusal of the name applied from CRC is an ordinary matter, we all are dealing with these days.

The following are the standard bases for company name refusal during the company registration process.

The proposed name is not according to the activities described in Main Objects

The proposed Name is not available because of the existence of identical or closely resembling companies

The proposed name is too general without any distinct word or identity

Keywords like Industry/Udyog, Enterprises, Products, Business, Manufacturing

The proposed name does not include the suitable prefix

The proposed name includes words like National, Central, Union, Federal, etc which are considered undesirable

The Companies Act, 2013 furnishes the ensuing guidelines that can save us from rejection or re-submission of a name.

Attributes to be saved in mind for Name Application to avoid Resubmission / Rejections Matters to be ignored while likening the names as per the MCA name availability guidelines (MCA naming guidelines)-

It should be overlooked whether a word is in the plural or singular number in one or both names.

For e.g., Ayurvedic commodity Ltd is similar to Ayurvedics commodity Ltd or Ayurvedic commodities Ltd.

The style and case of letters, spacing between letters, punctuation marks and special characters used in one or both names shall be ignored.

E.g., XYZ Ltd. is the same as X.Y.Z. Ltd. and X Y Z Ltd.

The usage of distinct tenses in the names shall also be ignored.

E.g., Shine stars and Shining stars.

Use of the definite or indefinite article in one or both names.

E.g., Travel Company Ltd. is the same as The Travel Company Ltd. and A Travel Company Ltd.
