India Market Entry Strategy

Company Incorporation and Regulatory Compliances

Establishing the best suitable entity for international companies in India 

At TechSci Research, we help international companies to build right legal entity structure for entering into the Indian market that serves the best of the business objectives. We understand and help with the right legal procedures for the entity. 

We provide business & tax advisory, company incorporation/registration, as well as support for obtaining all legal and regulatory approvals. 

For an international company in India, there are different entry options to set up their India business. Selecting the right and well-suited legal entity for international company’s subsidiary in India is mostly determined by client’s market-entry strategy, timeline and strategic actions in India – e.g. for production, installation of machinery and export, warehousing and local demand processing of goods or local service offerings in India.

    Given the objective of the report was to understand overall opportunity landscape of Sensors, a more detailed explanation of the manufacturing process, value chain activities and player landscape have attributed higher value to the report

    It is a good piece of information when a company doesn’t have any information on a market as it combines quantitative and qualitative data. This why if I’m tasked to find data on an unknown market, I would probably contact you back
