Government Of Assam Finance Registrar of Firms & Societies

Brief History

  • Till 15-06-1946, works under Indian Partnership Act, 1932 were looked after by the Commissioner of Excise, Assam and works under Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 were looked after by the Assistant Commissioner, Joint Stock Companies, Assam, Shillong. On 16-06-1946 the office of the Assistant Commissioner, Joint Stock Companies, Assam, Shillong has been converted to the Registrar of Firms & Societies, Assam. Thus the office of the Registrar of Firms and Societies, Assam came into being with effect from 16-06-1946.

    There is no District and Sub-Divisional Level Office under the control of the Registrar of Firms and Societies, Assam. The Office of the Registrar of Firms and Societies is under the administrative control of Government of Assam in the Finance (Establishment B) Department.

    The Registrar is the registering authority and under his supervision and guidance the Grade-III staff are required to examine and put up proposals for Registration of Firms under Section 58 of the Indian Partnership Act, 1932 and for Registration of Societies under the Societies Registration Act, 1860. Guiding principles under different section of these two Acts are also required to be followed. Besides there are other specific guidelines issued by the Government of India as well as Government of Assam, which are required to be followed in dealing with certain categories of applications for Registration of Firms and Societies as the case may be. When the subject relates to a policy decision or some other important matter requiring to be disposed of by the Registrar, he/she forwards the file to the Government for obtaining necessary approval.
