In Tally ERP 9 there are two kinds of Groups for Ledgers. The first one is Pre-Defined or Default Groups for Ledgers which are ready-made. We can neither delete nor change its Group, but we can alter all the options including the Name of the group except Group Head. With my practical knowledge i am telling you that do not try to alter the name of the default Group/s.

And the Second one is User-Defined Groups which are created by the user based on his requirement to show in the Financial Statements. In Tally.ERP 9 there is no limit for creating the User-Defined Groups for Ledgers.
