VSAQ-2 : What is a One person company?

A One Person Company (OPC) is defined under the Companies Act, 2013 as a company that has only one person as its member. While the Companies Act has regulations concerning the minimum number of members required to form a company, in the case of an OPC, a single individual holds all the shares of the company. To meet the regulatory requirements, this individual may appoint dummy members, often friends, family members, or relatives, who hold one or two shares each. These dummy members have limited liability and are usually nominated by the sole owner of the company.
