The definitions The Action Plan defines a 'Startup' to mean an entity incorporated or registered in India not prior to 5 years, with an annual turnover not exceeding Rs 25 crore in any preceding financial year, and which is working towards innovation, development, deployment of new products, processes or services driven by technology or intellectual property.
A firm involved in the mere act of developing a product or process, which does not have potential for commercialisation will not be categorised as a startup. Similalrly, development of an undifferentiated product or process or service or such products or processes or services which have no or low incremental value will not be considered to be covered within the definition of a startup.
An entity can be set up as a private limited company , a registered partnership firm or a Limited Liability Partnership LLP. Specifically in the context of partnership firms, such firms India are governed by the Indian Partnership Act, While it is not mandatory to get registration, but to avail the benefits under the startup initiative, an entity is required to register itself under the provisions of the Indian Partnership Act.
The process of recognition entails obtaining a letter of recommendation from an incubator which is filed with DIPP along with the application. Such an incubator could be recognised or funded by the Government of India or established in a post graduate college in India. In order to obtain tax and IPR related benefits, a startup shall also be required to be certified as an eligible business from the Inter-Ministerial Board of Certification.
The process of registration as a startup is real time and a recognition certificate is issued immediately upon successful uploading of the application. Stumbling blocks As discussed, in order to qualify for the incentives, the startup would need to determine whether it would fit into the definition as notified by the Government of India.
Whether the business of the startup entails development of new products, processes or service would need to be determined on a case by case basis. An incubator who is responsible for issuing a letter of recommendation would be required to be convinced that the business activities do qualify as such. This is also especially since if it is later found that the incubator issued the letter of recommendation without satisfying itself, the incubator could be blacklisted by the Government from providing any further recommendations.
In order to make the process faster and more efficient, it would have been good if the Government would have allowed self-certification by entrepreneurs with severe penalties in the event that such a certification was found to be false subsequently.
This is also comparable to venture capital funds seeking registration as Category I Alternate Investment Fund with the Securities and Exchange Board of India SEBI , wherein the fund declares itself to be involved in the activity of investing primarily in unlisted securities of startups, emerging or early-stage venture capital undertakings mainly involved in new products, new services, technology or intellectual property right based activities or a new business model, and is not required to seek any certification for this purpose.
It would be good if a clarification is provided on this aspect especially considering the fact that an FVCI has recently been permitted to invest in startups without foregoing benefits accorded to an FVCI.
On the whole, the Startup India Action Plan seems to be geared in the direction of following a westernised model of encouraging entrepreneurship and creating value. A few changes can make the process of recognition simpler. In the next series, we will examine the benefits accorded by the Action plan and the sufficiency of such benefits especially tax incentives to boot strap the startup economy.
