The registration of Shops and Establishments has been put into place so as to regulate the working and employment conditions in shops and commercial establishments across the country. This law promotes the industrial safety and welfare of the employees that work in such establishments. The Department of Labour of each state administers this law. The Company Registration India is an online forum that is regulated and comes under the purview of the Companies Act, 2013. The site also adheres to the guidelines set by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) and is processed by the Registrar of Companies from the Central Registration Centre (CRC). This portal for registering companies has a web-based filing system that we can assist you to fill. A “shop” is defined as any premise where trading or business activities are carried out, or where services are provided to the customers.
