Startup Recognition — Myth Vs. Reality

And if you still don’t believe us, here are what some of the Startups who recently got recognized have to say:

“My company Delectrik Systems Pvt. Ltd. recently received the Startup recognition certificate from DIPP and subsequently also got approved as Eligible Business for availing Tax Benefits. Post application the Startup recognition took about a week’s time and the Tax benefit approval another 10 weeks. I was pleasantly surprised at the simplicity of the whole process. In addition to the standard company details all my application had was a 2-page pitch document on company’s nature of Business, its potential, impact and the present status” — — Vishal Mittal, Delectrik Systems Pvt. Ltd.

“I had “register for StartUp India” on my to do list for months, but kept putting it off until I heard from a fellow entrepreneur that it had only taken him a single day to apply. I then filled out the application and submit it in just an hour or two. The only part that took any time was editing our pitch deck for the application. Now I just wish I’d done it earlier!” — Katie Taylor, Khetworks
