This opulent webpage of Global Jurix is exclusively written. As its very name implies, an OPC can be formed and managed by a single director and a single shareholder; a single person can be both of these simultaneously. However, a nominee is compulsorily required at the time of registration of the OPC, in order to ensure the registrar that in case of demise or inability of the director to run the company, the nominee will helm the whole affairs. This OPC is registered as a private limited company, and thus, the minimum paid-up capital required for its registration is just Rs. One Lac. The section below describes the whole registration process of the one person company anywhere in entire India.
