Registrars of companies or ROC are appointed under Companies Act with the primary duty of registering companies and LLPs in respective states and union territories. These ROC offices also ensure that such companies and LLPs comply with statutory requirements under the Companies Act 2013.
The Central government exercises administrative control over these registrars of Companies offices through respective regional directors. Seven Regional Directors are in-charge of the respective regions, each region comprising a number of States and Union Territories.
For instance, if you want to have your principal or registered office in Connaught place, Delhi or in any other place of Delhi then your company has to be registered with ROC Delhi. Similarly, if your registered office is to be in kolkata or in any other part of West Bengal then you have to register the company with ROC kolkata.
Similarly, for other states, ministry of corporate affairs has set up its offices. In two states, Tamilnadu and maharastra we have two ROC offices.
For states like Haryana and Delhi we have one ROC in Delhi. North eastern states Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Tripura, Mizoram, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh have one ROC in Silong, Assam. Similarly for Punjab, chandigarh and himachal predesh we have one ROC in Chandigarh.
The beauty of company registration is that after registration, company can operate its business from any where of India without any registration with the new states. No permission is required from other ROC offices to do business except in case of change in company’s registered office.
