Factory Establishment in Rajasthan

India is among the world’s most propitious destinations for manufacturing pursuits. The country boasts of a highly demanding market, lucrative policy supports (such as Make in India), and an unparalleled competitive edge. National statistics suggest a brighter future for the endeavour as the manufacturing sector’s GAV (Gross Annual Value) growth stood at an annual rate of 13.5% during the end of the previous financial year (2017-18). Also strikingly, the country requires the helping-hand of manufacturers to not only propel its economic strata but also to curb the menace of unemployment. In this article, we look at the procedure for obtaining factory establishment license in Rajasthan in detail.
