To obtain a license to open a restaurant in Maharashtra, India, you will need to present certificates to your local police department demonstrating that you either own the property or have the permission of the owner. You must submit a plan to the Municipal Corporation and obtain its approval. The same government agency will issue you a utilization certificate, trade license and health license.

Additional Certification

You also will need to present a certificate from the fire department demonstrating that it will have no objection to your operating as a restaurant at the location you choose. In addition, be sure to register your business with the commissioner of labor as well as the director of Industrial Safety and Health, to obtain licenses qualifying you to participate in the Shop Act program, which authorizes businesses to monitor their own worker safety programs.

Complying With the Food Standards and Safety Act

Familiarize yourself with the 2006 Food Standards and Safety Act. According to this legislation, restaurant owners need to present the health department with documentation from a physician attesting to the fact that each member of its staff is healthy. The law requires physical examinations every six months. The state's Food and Drug Administration will regularly test food samples to make sure that they are free from food-borne illnesses and toxic chemicals.
