MCA Master Data

To find data about a particular entity in the MCA Master Data, you must know its full or partial name. This will allow the MCA database to conduct the search. If it is able to find a result matching the name you have typed, it will present one or more names to you for you to choose from, along with their CIN number. If it isn’t able to, then it will say ‘No Records Found’. The link to the website can be accessed here.

Charges on the Company

Simultaneously, it will also run a check to see if there are any charges against the company. This will tell you if the company has any creditors or lenders who have created a charge on the company, in case of non-payment of the loan. The MCA will give information on when the charge it was created, who it was created by, the amount and the address of the charge holder.

Directors of the Company

The names of the directors will also appear, along with their Director Identification Number, contact details and the date of appointment.
