Startups will never be harassed: CIM

Commerce and Industry Minister, Shri Piyush Goyal said at a function “I assure you that start-ups will never be harassed. They have to do the limited activity of registering themselves so that good law is not misused by a few people.” He also stated that startups would not be asked any questions if they are registered with and recognised by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT).

Some time back, startups made representations to the government about receiving notices from the Income Tax Department, making it difficult for them to operate.
