I went to the Municipal Corporation in Andheri, Mumbai today to get a Shops and Establishment registeration for my sole proprietership concern.
I will be working alone from my house. My house is in my grandmothers name and I got a notarised paying guest agreement done with her. The light and telephone bills are in my fathers name and I got a NOC from him. I gave my passport, drivers license and pan card xerox.
The person in the Shops and Establishments told me that I cannot run a commercial enterprise from my residential address. I would need to get a NOC from the society, put up a name plate outside my door in Marathi and apply for a new electricity meter under commercial category.
At the end, he said I could pay Rs. 8000-10000 and avoid all these hassles.
I would like to know if the information he told me, about not being able to run a business from my residence was correct. I will be working alone. Do I need a NOC from the society.
I am applying for Shops and Establishments registeration for opening a current account.
