Rules For Picking Your Company Name


The Registrar of Companies (RoC) across India expect applicant to follow a few naming guidelines. Some of them are subjective, which means that approval can depend on the opinion of the officer handling your application. However, the more closely you follow the rules listed below, the better your chances of approval.

Unique Component: In Flipkart Internet Private Limited, Flipkart is the unique component. Now, once taken, the name Flipkart will not be given to any other business within the suffix Internet or even related categories (E-commerce and Online Solutions, for example). But there is some subjectivity, too. Some RoCs may not even approve the name Flipkart Chemicals Private Limited, reasoning that the e-commerce brand Flipkart is too well-known. Similar sounding names would also be rejected (so no Flipcart).

Blacklist: Abbreviations, adjectives and generic words are rejected. So BBC or XYZ would be rejected, as would Good Quality Biscuits. The words bank, exchange and stock exchange, unless approved by RBI or SEBI, would also be rejected.

No Common Trademark: There should not be a registered trademark by the same name on the IP India website. If there is one, the name can only be approved if you are able to get a No-Objection Certificate from its owner authorising you to use it.

Descriptive Component: In Biocon Research Private Limited, the word 'Research' describes the business the company is into. You cannot have 'Research' in your name if you're, say, in the logistics or restaurant business.
