    Any person, who intends to establish a large scale industry for a regulated product which is under the licensing regime, is required to obtain prior license from the Secretariat for Industrial Assistance, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion, Government of India (“SIA") which shall act as the enforcement authority. The requirement of licensing has been liberalized by the Government of India and pursuant to such liberalization industrial licenses are now required only for a few industries (such as industrial explosives or specified hazardous chemicals) and majority of the industries have been de-licensed.

    All industrial undertakings exempt from the requirements of industrial licensing are required to file information in the prescribed form for Industrial Entrepreneurs Memorandum with the SIA and obtain an acknowledgement.
