What is Startup India Registration?

A startup is a new business that has just been started. It is usually small and created by one person or a group of people. How it’s different from other new businesses because it comes up with a new product or service that isn’t already being sold elsewhere in the same way. “Invention” is the keyword. The business either comes up with a new product or service or improves an existing product or service to make it better.

Startup India is a flagship programme of the Indian government (started in January 2016) that aims to create a robust ecosystem for nurturing innovation and startups in the country, resulting in long-term economic growth and large-scale job creation. With this effort, the government hopes to empower startups to grow through innovation and design. To achieve the initiative’s goals, the Indian government launched the Startup India Action Plan, which covers all areas of the startup ecosystem.
