Indian Startup Procedures

The startup eligibility criteria

What makes you a startup under the Startup India program?

  • The firm has to be a private limited company or a limited liability partnership
  • The company remains a startup for the first ten years, post the date of registration. In the recent past, the Indian government changed that to 10 years from 7 years to give opportunities and tax exemptions for the companies for a longer run
  • The company remains a startup if the turnover per year does not cross the Rs 100 crore mark in any of the 10 years. Once the company crosses the mark, it no longer remains eligible to be called a startup. The mark of Rs 100 crore too has been improved by the Indian government in the recent past from Rs 25 crore
  • The firm should have approval from the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP)
  • The firm should be funded by an Incubation Fund, an Angel Fund or a Private Equity Fund
  • A patron guarantee from the Indian Patent and Trademark office is necessary
  • You must have a recommendation letter by an incubation
  • The firm must come up with innovative ideas and schemes
  • All the details regarding the funding must be registered with SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India)
