Step 1: Adopting a Board Resolution
A resolution to change the company's name must be approved by the board of directors at a meeting. They should then designate one of them or the company secretary (CS) to contact the MCA to inquire about the name's availability.
Step 2: Verifying Name Availability
To check the availability of the proposed name, the authorized person should submit a form INC-1 to the MCA. It's crucial to conduct a trademark search for the suggested name.
Prior to determining their availability, it is advised that you shortlist four to five potential names to cover any chances of them already being taken or in use.
Step 3: Adopting a Special Resolution
A special general meeting (EGM) should be called by the company once the new name's availability has been verified. To change the name and make the necessary adjustments to the AoA and the MoA, a special resolution will be passed.
Step 4: Submitting an application to the Registrar
After being passed, the special resolution must be submitted to the ROC along with the form MGT-14, which contains information about it.
Form INC-24 must be submitted to ROC along with the required fee within 30 days of submitting the MGT-14. This is necessary in order to get the central government's approval for the name change.
Step 5: Issuing the Certificate of Incorporation
The ROC will issue a new certificate of incorporation reflecting the name change once it is satisfied that all requirements of the application and supporting documents have been met.
