What is an example of private and public limited companies?
A Private Company is closed company in which members or shareholders do not exceed more than 200 at any point of time. Some examples are Goggle India Pvt. Ltd., Marriott Hotels Pvt. Ltd.American express (India) Pvt. Ltd. etc. to name few.
A public company is company where any one can be member of company and has no limit on number of shareholders at all. Some examples are: Reliance Industries Limited, Infosys Technologies Ltd., Wipro Limited etc.
The major difference is a private company has PVT. word is affixed before limited word in its name. Whereas, a public company has Limited word in last.
