Registering a New Business in India

Like a sapling needs the right amount of sunshine, water, and nutrients to grow. Similarly, a new business idea requires an efficient and secure environment to flourish. Especially in today’s competitive market, ruthlessly ruled by corporate giants and conglomerates, support to the entrepreneurs and their budding ideas should be a priority for the Government. Concrete measures should be proactively taken by the Government of India to ensure the smooth establishment and operation of the new businesses. Let’s take a look for the Benefits of Registering New Business in India through SPICs.

Benefits of Registering New Business in India

At present, India fares quite poorly at the World Bank Ease of Doing Business ranking, lagging behind in the 130th position. Under the charismatic leadership of the Honourable Prime Minister, the Government is determined to bring about monumental shifts in the business sector of the country. The aim is to secure India’s position amongst the Globes’ top 50 destinations in ensuring ease of doing business and offering a commerce-friendly atmosphere. In the last couple of years, initiatives such as ‘Make in India,’ ‘Unified Payments Interface,’ etc. have been launched to promote the growth of indigenous industries, and to transact in a transparent and efficient manner.

The introduction of SPICe (Simplified Performa for Incorporating Companies Electronically) under the Companies Fourth Amendment Rules 2016 is another bold step. It provides a digital platform to register and start a new business. The online application ensures transparency and efficiency and eliminates corruption by by-passing the corrupt elements in the system. The concept is similar to the erstwhile INC29, which simplified the effort of establishing a business. Any type of company, be it Sole Proprietorship or Private Limited or Public Limited, can be incorporated using the online platform.
