What licenses are needed to start a retail business in India?
Almost 23% of India's GDP comes from the wholesale and retail industry, which purchases finished goods from manufacturers and sells them to retail customers. Between March and April 2020, the Indian retail sector received UDS 2.12 billion in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) from the Department of Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT). The Indian retail market has undergone significant transformation over the past ten years, according to the 'India-The Top Retail Destination' report published by Invest India, a National Investment Promotion and Facilitation Agency. Thus, the overall retail market is expected to exceed USD 1.75 trillion by the end of 2026 from USD 795 billion in 2017.
No doubt, starting a retail business in India can benefit business owners due to the enormous market share and size of the Indian retail sector. The advantages of starting a retail business in India include:
Direct Connection With Customers
Expansion of Customer Base
Variety of Products
Reduced Input Cost
Manufacturing Own Goods
