So it is very important to choose a unique name that suits the character and nature of your business. If you already have a name in your mind, then search MCA the database to check its availability.

Common Reasons for Rejection:

1.     Trademarked Name: The proposed name of your company should not be identical to any existing company’s name or already registered trademark or a name already in the process of trademark registration.

2.     Usage of common words: If your company name contains any common words it will get rejected. For example, New, Like, Modern, Shri, Om, Jai, Sai, etc. to an existing name.

3.     Ignore Name of a Place: If your company name is different just by adding the name of the place to any existing company name, then your application will be rejected.

For Example:

Existing name: Cult Port Limited

New applicant company name: Chennai Cult Port Limited (It will get rejected)

Regulatory Approval for Certain Name: If the proposed company name contains words like Insurance, Bank, Mutual funds, Stock market, it is mandatory to get approval from the respective regulatory system.

The Word “STATE”: Never use the word “State”, your application will be rejected for sure. Only the government has the authority to use the word “State” along with names.

Translated Name: If your proposed company name contains the exact match and translation of the English version of the existing name, then your application will be rejected.

No Offensive name: Your company name shouldn’t be offensive to any section or group in society. Profanity is strictly disallowed.
