Procedure for Incorporation of company using Spice-e form
In the Previous E-form INC-29  there was a restriction i.e. if Company filed INC-1 for proposal of name then it was not possible for the Company to file INC-29.Because INC-29 was not providing the way to file if company already has got name approval by INC-1.
But in INC-32 at point no. 5(a)(i) of INC-32 there is a option “Whether Name is already approved by Registrar of Companies” Company has to select  Yes or No in this Option.
In case of Yes (Means Company has got name approval in INC-1) then mention the SRN of such INC-1. But in case name is not approved by INC-1 then mention the name and significance as we were applying in INC-29.
SPICe will be the Sole, Simplified & Versatile form available for incorporation of One Person Company & Company having up to seven Subscribers including Section 8 companies.
