    • Dear Sir 

      As per Section 248 of the Companies Act 2013:

      (2) A Company may, after extinguishing all its liabilities, by a special resolution or consent of seventy-five per cent members in terms of paid up share capital, file an application in Form STK-2 to thRegistrar for removing the name of the company from the register of companies on all or any of the grounds specified in sub-section (1) and the Registrar shall, on receipt of such application, cause a public notice shall be in Form STK 5 or STK 6, as the case may be.

      (3) Nothing in sub-section (2) shall apply to a company registered under section 8.

      Therefore, no application is required to be made to ROC for striking off the name of the company in Form STK-2.

    • Yes i also agreed with Mr. Sohil Sohil

      Companies registered as Section 8 can close or shut down the company through surrendering their Section-8 license firest to operate as a charitable company.

      Such license can be surrendered by converting the company into a normal company other than a Section 8 company.

      Note: Section 8 company cannot be converted to One Person Company (OPC)

      Procedure to convert a section 8 company into a company of any other kind according to Rule 21 and Rule 22 under the Companies Act 2013;
