Nidhi Company Closure

As a part of the Companies ACT 2013, a Nidhi Registered company is a non banking finance sector company. A Nidhi Company is put for the benefit of the members. The soul of the Nidhi Company function is to borrow and lend money between the members. A Nidhi registered company can also be called as a Mutual fund, Beneficial fund and Permanent fund company. Nidhi falls under the Non Bank Financial Company (NBFC) where the rules are governed by Reserve Bank of India (RBI), as a result of this RBI has the power to direct how the company accepts the deposit and as such. However, since Nidhis deal with their shareholder-members only, RBI has exempted such notified firms from the core provisions of the RBI Act and other directions applicable to NBFCs. It should contain Nidhi Limited in its name.

A nidhi company can be closed owing to many reasons that would range from internal to external factors. The term winding up is also used to define the same where the company would not be functional anymore. Incase the company is not shutdown properly then the company must be spending money on compliances and standard audit related filings on yearly basis to stay legal for no proper reason, hence to avoid this many not functioning model companies are advised to do a proper closure for the well being.
