Nidhi Company Registration

Nidhi Company Registration

Nidhi Company is a form of Non-Banking Financial Company (NBFC). It is made to borrow as well as for lending money to its members. It instructs the habit of saving amongst its members and acts on the principle of mutual benefit. Nidhi Company is not required to obtain a license from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), and thus it is easy to be formed.  It is registered as a public company and must have “Nidhi Limited” as the last word of its name.

Nidhi Company in India 

According to section 406 of the Companies Act of 2013 and the Companies (Nidhi Companies) Rules of 2014 state all the provisions relating to the incorporation and governance of the Nidhi Companies in India.  The rules and directives regarding the Nidhi Companies are also been issued by the Reserve Bank of India. These are mostly related to financial actions and investments by corporations which include the NBFCs. Because of the reason that the Nidhi Companies are involved in the business of deposits as well as loans through its members only, a few exemptions were provided to these corporations, by the RBI.

The interest that is charged on the loans under a Nidhi Company is reasonable. The purposes the loans are sought are, generally for manufacturing/renovation of houses or a child’s education, etc. The loans are given against security only. The deposit under Nidhi companies does not earn much interest when compared to deposits in the organized banking sector.

The lending and borrowing of the Nidhi Companies are carried out by its members, only. Thus, such corporations are also referred to as Mutual Benefit Societies, because they work for the mutual benefit and welfare of every member.
