Application for removal of the name of the companies from the register of companies maintained by Company registrars has legal roots in Subsection (2) of Section 248 of the Companies Act, 2013 as discussed earlier here and now outdated. Rule 4 of the Companies (Removal of Names of Companies from the Register of Companies) Rules, 2016 deals with its procedural aspects which we discussed earlier here. Recently, the Companies (Removal of Names of Companies from the Register of Companies) Amendment Rules, 2019 amended Rule 4 significantly. We will discuss updated Rule 4 in this post.
