Private Limited to Public Limited Company


The conversion of Private Limited Company into Public Limited Company becomes effective on the date of approval by Registrar of Companies and issues Fresh Certificate of Incorporation.
The Companies Act, 2013 provides for converting a Public Company to a Private Company by altering the MOA and AOA of the company.


There are several advantages of converting a private limited company into a public limited company, especially when the size of the company in terms of capital requirement and turnover is large enough to generate the need for public funding. Following are some reasons for which private limited company should be converted into a public limited company:
  1. A Private company is an organization where the number of members is not more than 200 and cannot invite the public to subscribe to its shares whereas a Public Company has seven or more members, and can invite and accept public to subscribe to its shares
  2. A subsidiary company of a Public company is deemed to be a public company
  3. If a private company goes public then the risk is also shared among the shareholders
  4. Only a public limited company can be listed on a recognized stock exchange
  5. A public company can take a deposit from the public.

Important Legal Provision
