We assisted a Japan based listed research & development multinational company in planning its investment into India. We helped them in understanding the multiple options available with a foreign company for starting its operations in India. We also helped them to obtain required regulatory approvals / licenses along with registrations with various central and state laws to start their operations.



  • Fast Track Setting of Operations

  • Various Licences / permission for doing research & trials in different states of India.
