Public Limited company registration

A PLC or a Public Limited Company under Company Act, 2013 is a company who works with limited liability and intends to offer their to general public. However, they are easy to enroll and acquire by any person by choosing either of two options, one is to purchase privately through IPO i.e. initial public offering or by trading via stock market. One of its tough working parts is that it is bound with strict rules and regulations which involves opening up by publishing its true financial position to its shareholders.

Moving on, The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) launched SPICe+* which is a company registration form with the sole motive of sparing the meaningless efforts to businesses.

I would like to discuss:
