Well, if you aren’t aware of how to check company registration number online, then this blog is surely for you. Company Registration Number (CRN) is a unique number that every company receives from the ROC (Registrar of Companies) during the registration process. 

But the biggest concern is that people often confuse between the CIN and CRN. However, both the Company Registration Number and Corporate Identity number are entirely different from each other.  

Therefore, firstly, we will understand the significance of company registration number and then proceed on to the process of checking the CRN.  

What is Company Registration Number? 

A Company Registration Number (CRN) is a 6-digit unique number allotted to companies by the ROC at the time of the company incorporation process. 

Difference Between CRN and CIN 

CRN is quite distinct from CIN. There are three major differences between the two. They are as follows: 

  • A company registration number is a 6-digit number while CIN is a 21-digit number. 
  • CRN only has numbers while CIN is alphanumeric. 
  • The registration number of a company can be checked only on MCA’s web portal. However, CIN is present in the Certificate of Incorporation sent by the ROC.
