The Shops and Establishment (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) was a Central Bill espousing an amendment and consolidation relating to employment and conditions of service at shops and establishments. This Bill has been adopted by various State Governments, and as such, only a brief overview is provided of the same. However, a key unifying requirement is the requirement of the Shop & Establishment License that is required to operate the same in any State.

Since each State has its different Act & Rules, we provide a one-stop solution where the procurement of your license is left to us, with your role being restricted to giving us the information and documents as needed. This shall save you the headache of plowing through the verbose legalese, and allow you to put all your efforts in the Shop or Establishment you run, than in getting the license for the same!



Every State requires a Shop/Establishment to not only obtain a license within 30 days of commencing operations but also show it prominently at the Shop/Establishment in question. Furthermore, this license forms the bedrock of approvals required for commercial operations, and thus always helps further down the road as a proof of the same.
