ROC, Delhi & Haryana in its drive to clean the registry has issued the notice of striking off to 1171 LLP’s under Section 75 of LLP Act, 2008 read with Rule 37 of LLP Rules, 2009 by notification dated 30/05/2018.

This comes after the regular pressure from the Govt to streamline the entities and force them mentally to think that compliances are not optional in nature and thin line to observe here is: you cannot be allowed to run businesses if you are taking annual compliances for granted.

Here are the Highlights of the Notice issued by MCA regarding Striking off of Name of 1171 LLPs.
