When the Company is incorporated, a Certificate of Incorporation is issued by the Registrar of Companies which acknowledges the existence of the Company. Once the name of the company is entered into the register it cannot be removed unless the company applies for it or is processed by law. Strike Off means removing the name of the Company from the Register of Companies maintained by the Registrar of Companies. It is more like a Closure of the Company and the Company will not be in existence after being Struck Off and cannot perform any operation thereafter. The voluntary closure of a company can be either through winding up or application by the company for striking off of its name to Registrar of Companies (ROC).
