    The process of changing the name of a private limited company typically involves several steps and the submission of specific documents. Here are the general steps and documents involved in the name change process for a private limited company:

    1. Board Resolution: Hold a board meeting and pass a resolution to propose a new name for the company. Ensure that the proposed name complies with the guidelines provided by the company registrar or governing authority.
    2. Conduct a Name Availability Search: Check the availability of the proposed name with the Registrar of Companies (RoC) or the relevant authority. This step is crucial to ensure that the desired name is not already registered or too similar to an existing company’s name.
    3. Special Resolution: Call for an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) and pass a special resolution to approve the name change. The resolution should be supported by the requisite majority of shareholders as per the company’s articles of association.
    4. Application for Name Change: Prepare and submit an application for name change to the RoC or the relevant authority. The application should include the following documents:
      • Board resolution approving the name change.
      • Special resolution passed by the shareholders.
      • Application form for name change (as per the prescribed format).
      • Revised Memorandum of Association (MOA) and Articles of Association (AOA) reflecting the new name.
      • Updated list of directors and shareholders.
      • Updated address proof of the registered office.
      • Payment of the prescribed fee for the name change.
    5. Verification and Approval: The RoC or the governing authority will verify the application and supporting documents. If everything is in order, they will issue a new Certificate of Incorporation with the updated company name.
    6. Update Statutory Registrations: After receiving the new Certificate of Incorporation, update the company’s name with various statutory authorities, including tax authorities, banks, licenses and permits, and other relevant registrations.
