HYDERABAD: Obtaining a trade licence for running a business in cities and towns across the state used to be a big challenge but the issue and renewal has been made easier now  as part of the Ease of Doing Business  reforms. Applicants for issue or renewal of trade licence in cities, towns and major villages ruled by nagar panchayats will be asked to submit only two documents, including phot-identity proof such as Aadhaar card in the case of an individual and income tax Permanent Account Number (PAN) or Incorporation Certificate in case of business. The other document to be provided is lease deed or legal occupancy.  

Municipal officials said that under Section 263 of Telangana Municipalities Act, 1965 and Section 521 of GHMC Act, 1955; ULBs are issuing and renewing trade licences on submission of as many as 14 documents depending on the nature of trade.  Any other information such as building plan, occupancy certificate and land use required to process the application for issue/renewal of trade license, the urban local body concerned would take the same from their own records. At present, GHMC insists on two documents.

Submission of online form for new trade licence at citizen service centres, e-Seva or online, provisional trade licence will be issued on the spot at e-Seva, CSC or online on submission of two mandatory documents and payment of initial licence fee. After field verification and if it is found that all  norms and bye-laws have been complied with, a final TIN-generated certificate will be issued.
