Any company in India may wish to increase its authorized share capital before the issuance of new share equity and the paid-up capital. The authorized share capital is the total worth of the shares that an entity can issue, While the paid-up capital is defined as the entire value of the shares that the entity has already issued. The paid-up capital of a company should never exceed the value of authorized capital.
