Both the states have about 1.27 lakh companies registered with RoC.

"Physical verification of some companies which were flouting norms, is going on. About 15,659 companies which are not following rules, have been identified. We will deregister them soon.

We are issuing first notices to another 13,554 companies which we feel are adhering to norms. Some of them may rectify themselves before the mandatory third notice is issued," A senior official at the RoC told PTI.

The companies are losing their registration under Section 248 of Company Law under which the RoC has the power to remove a company from the RoC when the official believes that the firm is not doing any business for the past two years.
