Q. I'm in 12td std (PCM) wanting to start a business. Please guide?

Answer: FOR Starting up a business, you will first have to determine what product/ service you want to sell. It is no use telling you about mainstream businesses. Even use of the term ‘mainstream’ has no meaning. Do you mean core sector industries by ‘mainstream business? We are not sure. If you do not mean a core sector business, then there are hundreds of businesses which can be profitable. Now, it is improbable for us to give you information about hundreds of information by e-mail.

First look around your locality. See what products and services are being sold. Think about something which is not available in your city or which has a lot of demand. See if there is any existing business which you can do better. See, how much money you can invest. Survey the market about the product or service you can sell. See the potential opportunities.

For setting up small scale businesses, you can get in touch with the Ministry of Industry, Government of Uttar Pradesh or Directorate of Industries, Government of Uttar Pradesh.
