    Authorized Capital – This is the maximum value of securities that the company can legally issue to its shareholders in the form of shares. The authorized share capital is always greater than the paid-up share capital and can be increased at any time with prior approval from the shareholders by passing a resolution.
    Paid-up Capital – This is the sum of money that is actually paid or invested by the shareholders of the company. Under the Companies Amendment Act, 2015, the requirement of having a minimum paid-up share capital has been removed at the time of incorporation of a company.

    No, Paid-up Share Capital can be equal or less than the authorized share capital but cannot be more than authorized share capital.

    Following are the methods through which a company can increase its paid-up share capital:
    Private placement
    Right issue
