One Person Company is a farsighted concept for big entrepreneurial dreams or someone who wishes to incorporate micro-businesses but has no sources, time, or means to attract more partners to achieve the business plan. Moreover, OPC Registration’s idea can be considered a combined structure of the  Sole proprietorship  and  Private Limited Company. 

Hence, the concept of One Person Company enjoys the best of two worlds.
