Why to Convert from Private Limited Company to Public Limited Company?

Converting a Private Limited Company to a Public Limited Company uplifts the business. It widens the opportunity, especially by leading access to the market at a broader range and also at raising funds. In a public limited company, even a common man can become a member of the entity. Furthermore, the company can raise funds by making public issues of shares and can also accept deposits from the general public which private limited companies are prohibited as per Companies Act.
