Fetch Company Details

About

  • The API takes in id (CIN or LLPIN) and returns the details of the body corporate.
  • The Details are fetched from the MCA Master Data

Definition

  • Corporate Identification Number (CIN) is a unique 21-digit alphanumeric number provided to all companies registered in India.
  • The CIN is used to track all the aspects of the company. The CIN is therefore used to identify and retrieve basic information about the company.
  • Similar to CIN, LLPIN is the identification number for LLPs.
  • MCA has been enabled the public to access the master data of any company/LLP registered with the Registrar of Companies.
  • Master Data of a company/LLP is the registration information of the company/LLP. Hence, the master data will include detail such as registration date, address, company category, etc.
  • A master data of a company can be pulled up by using its CIN and LLPIN in the case of LLPs.

Usecase

By knowing this information, you can

  • Verify claims by your clients or vendors by cross-checking the information from the MCA master data.
  • Automate the population of data when onboarding a company or LLP.
