The administration of an innovation-free country is keen on hastening the rise of new businesses. To determine whether new enterprises qualify as startups, it is forming an Inter-Ministerial Board.
These new companies will qualify for tax perks, such as tax exemption for three of their first five years, due to their innovative character.

What is a Start-up?

The Startup India Action Plan defines a startup as a company that has been in operation for less than five years and has an annual turnover of less than Rs.25 crores in the preceding fiscal year and is focused on the creation of new products, processes, or services that are in some way influenced by technology or intellectual property.

The business that has already been operating cannot create a new legal entity by splitting up or reorganizing it into many parts.

Companies are no longer considered Startups after their annual revenue has reached INR 25 crore or they have been in operation for more than five years from the date of their formation or registration.

For tax breaks to apply, they must be approved by a special government agency called the Inter-Ministerial Board.

Order to Be Considered:

Be supported by a recommendation (about the creative character of the firm) from an Incubator set up at an Indian grad school, in the format stipulated by DIPP.

Be supported by an incubator that is funded by the GoI as part of any designated program to foster innovation (in connection to the project).
Obtain a patent in areas linked to the nature of the business that is being marketed from the Indian Patent and Trademark Office.

Receive funding from the Government of India as a component of any particular program designed to encourage innovation

NOT Eligible for Startup India Action Plan:

However, companies are not eligible for subsidies if they are only in the process of developing the following sorts of goods or services:

  • Uncommercializable or underdeveloped products, services, or processes.

  • The lack of unique characteristics in a service or product.

  • Things that don't add much value to the customer's life or the business's operations

Eligible for Startup Tax Exemption:

The firm would need approval from the Inter-Ministerial Board, which was set up for this very purpose before it could receive tax advantages. Before the business can get tax breaks, the DIPP's Inter-Ministerial Board has to make sure that it is innovative.

Approval from the Inter-Ministerial Board, however, does not diminish or relieve the startup's obligation in the event of any misrepresentation or fraud deriving from the submission of such an application and/or supporting such an application.
