Does not require RBI compliance

It is not necessary for a Nidhi Company to adhere to any Reserve Bank of India regulations. Thus, the Nidhi Company is allowed to impose its own regulations

Less risky

The company's financial risk is reduced because all lending and depositing activities are carried out by its members themselves. Since only members of Nidhi Company handle financial transactions, it is secure and simple to follow the individual making a deposit or taking out a loan from the company.

Separate Legal Entity

A Nidhi Company is a person or juristic entity that was created in accordance with the Act. Which is why a Nidhi company can incur debts, hold property, and have broad legal capacity. A Nidhi company's members, or directors, are not liable to the company's creditors.

Liability is Limited

The Companies Act of 2013 limits the liability of directors and shareholders. The directors' and shareholders' personal assets are safe in the event that the company experiences any losses or problems.

Management is easy

Nidhi company's numerous financial procedures are quite simple to understand. All you have to do is read the criteria and make the appropriate loan or borrow. Additionally, there is no hard-and-fast rule. In addition, the government is loosening its regulations on lending rates, minimum equity shares amounts, and other things.


Compared to other member based organizations such as Trusts, Cooperative Societies, or NGOs, Nidhi companies are more credible.

Low capital requirement

The minimum capital needed to form a Nidhi Company is just Rs. 10 lakhs, under the Nidhi Rules, 2014.

Nidhi companies utilize a net-owned funding structure. When an owner invests money in the company to raise capital for it, this is referred to as net owned funding.
