A Private Limited Company is a small business which is maintained privately, it is one of the highly recommended businesses in India especially for startups. The registration of the private limited company is governed by The Companies Act 2013 in India. According to the Companies Act, 2013, a minimum of 2 shareholders is needed to begin a private company, while a maximum of 200 members. In case a private limited company undergoes any financial risk, the personal assets of members or shareholders are not subject to sell, i.e. they ought to have limited liability.

A limited company allows limited liability to its proprietors and to its management team. But in the case of a public limited company, a firm can sell shares to investors which are considered as a beneficial act in raising the capital for the business. To establish a Public Limited Company, a minimum of three Directors are required and there is no cap on the maximum number of members.

Like any other companies in India, Public Limited Company is also registered according to the rules and regulations of the Companies Act, 2013.
