A Nidhi Company is a significant type of company in the Indian non-banking financial sector authorised under Section 406 of the Companies Act, 2013, whose primary activity is inter-member borrowing and lending. Permanent Fund, Benefit Funds, Quasi-Bank, Mutual Benefit Funds, and Mutual Benefit Company are additional names for Nidhi Company. They fall under the category of an Indian non-bank financial company (NBFC). Their main goals while forming the organisation were to promote reserve fund building and member savings. The business accepts deposits from its members and exclusively lends money to all of them for mutual gain.

Nidhi corporations are governed by the Nidhi Rules, 2014. As a result of its incorporation as a public limited company, they are subject to two sets of regulations: the Businesses Act of 2013’s requirements for public limited companies and the 2014’s Nidhi Rules. Within a year of incorporation, any Nidhi firm must guarantee that it has at least 200 members.

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs, which oversees them, has the authority to give them directives regarding the acceptance of deposits. Considering that these businesses solely interact with their shareholders.

The “Principle of Mutuality” is the main idea behind it. It is more common in South India, and Tamil Nadu is home to 80% of Nidhi enterprises.


Knowing that the Nidhi company doesn’t need RBI approval makes the registration process for customers quick and easy.

The following stages are involved in registering a Nidhi company:-

  • The proposed directors of the company must apply for a digital signature (DSC). The DSC is issued by the certification agencies and the DPIN is issued by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA).

  • The e-Memorandum of Association (MoA) and e-Articles of Association (AoA) will be created and sent to the MCA using SPICe Forms when the name has been approved. The SPICe Form also includes complete information about the proposed directors and shareholders, as well as attachments with relevant paperwork.

  • Within a month, the Nidhi Company Registration will be finished, and you’ll obtain both the Registration Certificate and the Company Identity Number. The Nidhi Company’s registration with the MCA is attested to by the Certificate of Incorporation. If the directors did not previously have one, the Director Identification Number (DIN) is given to them along with the business registration.

Nidhi company establishment is easier and less complicated as compared to other finance business types like NBFC, which require an RBI licence to operate. A nidhi business can be started with Rs. 10 lakh in seed money and requires at least seven staff to get off the ground (minimum 7 members). To begin with, three directors are needed for Nidhi company registration. Each promoter or director must submit a copy of their PAN card along with proof of identity and address while applying for a nidhi corporation in India.



The Nidhi Company is one type of non-banking financial institution (NBFC). It was created so that its members may lend and borrow money. It encourages members to save money and runs on the principle of mutual benefit. The southern part of the country is where these enterprises are largely located. It is easy to establish because the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) does not require the Nidhi Company to seek a licence. As a public business, it should have “Nidhi Limited” at the end of its name.
