What is a Nidhi Company?

A Nidhi Company is founded to borrow and lend to its members with the goal of encouraging members to save money and operates on the premise of mutual aid. In India’s southern states, Nidhi enterprises are quite popular. A Nidhi Company, unlike an NBFC, is not required to obtain an RBI license. As a result, it is simple to implement. To begin, you must first form a public limited company with the word “Nidhi Limited” as the last word in its name. Second, when the number of shareholders reaches 200 within one year after incorporation, a separate application for Nidhi Company Status is filed with the ROC. The Company is unable to advertise that it is accepting deposits from the general public. It must also maintain its borrowing and advancing efforts inside its own ranks.
