Setting up Operations in India
 
 

A foreign company can set up its presence in India through a liaison office, a branch or a subsidiary. As a liaison office is not permitted to carry on any trading, commercial or industrial activity in India or earn any income from the day-to-day activities carried on by it in India, it is suitable as a mere representative office, which acts as a facilitator for the parent company which is currently gauging the market scenario in India. A branch on the other hand is permitted to carry on certain specified activities. A subsidiary is treated almost at par, with a domestic company. In some sectors, there is a cap on foreign investments and prior approval of the regulatory authorities such as the Foreign Investment Promotion Board is also required. In other cases, only the Reserve Bank of India is required to be intimated within a specified period of time from the date of issue of shares to foreign shareholders.
