To register your shop or establishment online, follow the steps outlined below:

Step 2: Fill up application form
Fill out the online application form accurately with information about your business. Details differ depending on the state and type of company.
Step 3: Upload documents
After completing the form, upload the necessary documents online/ In few states, physical submission of documents and a printout of the application form is required.
Step 4: Fee payment
The fee varies depending on the type of company and the type of licence. Many states have an online payment option, but DD/cash payments may also be made offline.
Step 5: Inspection
The labour department examines your application and, if they believe an inspection of your business premises is required in order to verify the particulars you filled up and documents attached, an inspector might be appointed to carry out an inspection. In the majority of cases, Inspection is not required.
Step 6: Approval and issuance of license
Following a review of your application and/or a visit to your business location, the authorities approve your application and issue a valid licence (normally valid for 1 year with renewal every year).
