Registration of a Section 8 company in India under the Companies Act 2013 involves a detailed procedure that must be followed strictly. Firstly, the company must obtain Digital Signature Certificates (DSC) and Director Identification Numbers (DIN) for its directors. Next, an application must be filed with the Registrar of Companies (ROC), along with the necessary documents, including a Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Articles of Association (AOA).

Once the ROC verifies the application and the documents, the company will be granted a Certificate of Incorporation. This certificate signifies that the company is now legal and can commence its operations. However, it is essential to note that Section 8 companies cannot use "Private Limited" or "Limited" in their name and must comply with various regulations and reporting requirements.
