  • Use of word ‘National’ in the names of Companies or Limited Liability
  • Partnerships (LLPs)
  • It has come to the knowledge of Ministry of Companies Affairs that Companies / Limited Liability Partnerships are being registered with the word ‘National’ in their names. It is being intimated that no company should be allowed to be registered with the word ‘National’ as part of its title unless it is a government company and the Central / State government(s) has a stake in it. This should be stringently enforced by all Registrar of Companies (ROCs) while registering companies. Similarly, the word ‘Bank’ may be allowed in the name of an entity only when such entity produces a ‘No Objection Certificate’ from the RBI in this regard. By the same analogy the word “stock Exchange” or “Exchange” should be allowed in name of a company only where ‘No Objection Certificate’ from SEBI in this regard is produced by the promoters.

The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development have formally presented the standard for the endorsement of G20 finance ministers during a February 22-23 meeting in Sydney in Australia, the world body, whose economic policies are followed by over 120 countries.
  • The G20 invited the OECD to develop a global standard on automatic exchange of information in 2013 and remains the driving force behind the move toward greater tax transparency worldwide. India has already signed the OECD's global standard for automatic exchange of information between tax authorities two years back and once the new format is implemented, the country will follow the new protocols envisaged in it.
