Name Clearance (NC) is a pre-requisite for registration of a new entity other than Foreign Company (Liaison or Branch office).

     iii. The promoters submit Online NC application
     iv. The promoters pay NC application fee to the designated RJSC office counter.

On receipt of a NC application and fees, RJSC provides name clearance for one of the proposed name for the new entity upon satisfaction that it does not closely match or resembles with any of the already taken names (registered, booked or under the process of registration of the same entity type).


Only one (1) name is cleared from among the proposed names for a new entity in one NC application.


The name clearance remains valid for thirty (30) days from the date of issue.



The promoters need to apply for registration of the cleared name within the validity (as stated above) of name clearance.
