Read the brief details of Registration & Satisfaction of Charges from the prescribed JAIIB’s LRAB Syllabus for JAIIB Exam 2022.


This article has been written for the candidates who are going to appear in the June 2022 exams of JAIIB. We have tried to explain the concept of registration and satisfaction of charges (taken from the applicable syllabus of LRAB 2022). It contains the types of charges, which are the charges which are required to be registered and the provisions relating to their registration.



  • What do you mean by charge? 

Charge is an interest-only on which is especially created on the property or assets of a company or its or other person’s undertakings as security. It may also include a mortgage.

  • What are the kinds of charges?

As per the Companies Act, charges have been classified into two types:

    • Fixed charge: It is also sometimes called a specific charge which can be extended to some specific property or properties of a company.
    • Floating charge: It refers to the security interest over a fund which keeps on changing. Example: Current assets of a company or a legal person.

It is different from a fixed charge as floating charge is created over property which has shifting nature while the fixed charge is on a definite property.

  • What kind of charges are required to be registered and by whom?

Every company is an application to distribute charges that have been created within 30 days of creation of Charge:

    • On its property or assets, whether its own or any of its undertakings
    • Whether tangible or intangible
    • Whether within or outside India 

  • What if a company fails to register the charge within 30 days?

If a company does not register the charge within 30 days of its creation, it can still register a charge in 30 days by the payment of additional fees.

But if it still does not register the charge with the ROC (registrar of Companies), ROC can allow on receipt of an application to register it within next 60 days on payment of prescribed fees.

  • When can a person (in whose favour the charge is to be created) register the charge?

If a company fails to register the charge within 30 days from its creation, the person in whose favour the charge is required to be created – can apply to ROC for its registration along with the charging instrument within 14 days of giving notice to the company. ROC will allow the registration on payment of fees unless the company itself has given sufficient cause as to why the charge should not be registered.

It has been further provided that if the charge has been registered by the person in whose favour the charge was required to be registered, such person can recover the number of fees, including additional fees paid by him or her to the ROC for this purpose.

  • What is the effect of registering a charge?

When a charge is registered with ROC, issue a certificate of registration to the company or to the person in whose favour it has been created.

  • What are the mandatory conditions for the registration of charge?

A company is required to register the charge on its property under the following conditions:

    • When a company acquires a property which is a subject to a charge
    • When there is any modification in the terms and conditions relating to the charge.
  • What are the things that should be taken into account when registering a charge?

Registration of charges and recorded in a register by the Registrar of Companies. This register is always open for inspection by any person on payment of fees.
