Section 187C makes it mandatory for the registered holders of shares to declare to the company the beneficial interest of someone else, if any, in the shares. Likewise, a person who holds beneficial interest in the shares, which are registered in the Register of members of the Company in someone else's name, must declare to the company regarding his beneficial interest in the shares.
