Now pls advise me that what will be the procedure to setup it, a major question is that should i take a licence from State Agriculture Deptt.

    • Licence from State Agriculture Department would be required as per my opinion since you will be dealing in marketing of agricultural inputs.

  18. I am presently unemployed and thinking of starting a distribution business of equipments. Do i need to register this?

    • yes for registration of any business you either obtain shop act licence(applicable in Maharashtra) and open Current account in the name of business.

  19. I am a fulltime salaried employee of a public ltd company & interested in forming a new Pvt Ltd company along with my 3 friends.Two of them are not working however i don’t intend to leave my current job but still want to be a part of the new company.

    • You should first find out what your Organization’s Code of Conduct / Terms of Employment Agreement states for the consequences of any violations. If it doesn’t allow you to start/participate in other ventures then you may take your own decision or there could be alternatives like adding your spouse/relative as a partner in that new venture.

  20. Hello, I read your very informative article abt LLP on MarketExpress. My question is: Is is possible to form a LLP without a resident partner? In other words a LLP between an american and a NRI indian?

    Thank you!
