To launch or introduce any products from foreign land to Indian land, product shall be registered by an Indian establishment on their legal entity name in India. A foreign company who doesn’t have its establishment or any business partner in India and wants to market its products in India, then they have to appoint Indian agent who is having legal entity in India.
Since only one Indian Authorized Representative office is needed for the whole country to operate business in India. If in case, you have your own distributor and in future may be not getting business or looking for another distributor, then to appoint another distributor, you have to process the registration process again.
