Not Easy to Do Business
Rating of the department on the basis of:
- Register the business
- Trade outside state/ country
They keep asking me to submit some new document every time
I helped to register a non-governmental organisation in the social sector in Bengaluru, Karnataka. The number of documents required to do the work was boggling, and very troublesome. It was quite a task to get a VAT certificate for our social enterprise. It took close to a year, as the process was lengthy and the officials kept asking for newer documents at every visit.
An advice to younger entrepreneurs would be that if you are not ready to bribe the officials, you should be ready to go through a lengthy process to get necessary certificates and documents.
Keep me updated about responses to my report and experience.
