Trade License Module Specs

Overview

The origin of a Trade License (TL) links to a mandatory license required to carry out dangerous and offensive trades and also trades that have health implications. Currently from shops to street vendors to restaurants and a lot of other trades must have a TL to carry out their business.
Why is a trade license required? The intent is to ensure trades that meet the prescribed health or safety guidelines. It ensures possible risks are inspected and meet the state’s necessary quality, health and safety standards. And, over time the trade license department has evolved into a new revenue opportunity stream for the ULB and now covers different types of trades.
Who needs a trade license? This varies from one state to another. In Chennai, registered companies do not need a TL. Every state publishes a list of all trades/trade types that need to procure a TL to carry out their business.
