As according to reformed rules any company who wishes to shift their Registered office from one state to another state can do so by advertising the notice of shifting registered office in a vernacular newspaper in the principal vernacular language in the district and in the English language in an English newspaper with the wide circulation.
Previously the startups need to release a notice of shifting of registered office in the widest circulated newspaper, which in case of failure used to result in the unnecessary delay of 4-5 months in the completion of the procedure.
