  1. V S VARUN says:

    Ms. Vinodchandra,

    For applying for name you need to visit mca.gov.in and go to option RUN. create a log in id and pw for the promoter. Apply through that. You can apply for 2 names in one go and should these names be not available, you could get one more chance for further 2 names.

  2. Avani Vinodchandra shah says:
