With increasing business activities, the count of new companies is on the rise with as many as 1.5 lakh firms getting registered in one-and-a-half years, according to data available with the corporate affairs ministry.

According to the ministry, there were about 30,386 companies in the process of being liquidated. Besides, 1.44 lakh firms have been classified as dormant, since they have not filed their annual returns/balance sheets for more than three consecutive years.
