Shops and establishments in Delhi were usually registered by sending a statement to the Chief Inspector in a prescribed form with certain details specified under Section 5 of the Delhi Shops and Establishments Act, 1954 (thereafter referred as ‘the Act’). This process of registration was exhaustive and time consuming as compared to the service of e-registration which has been introduced under the Act. Shops/establishments can now be registered in not more than an hour by the process of e-registration.E-registration is mandatory in order to get the shop/establishment (1) registered under the Act.
Every shop and establishment needs to register itself compulsorily under this Act within 30 days of commencement of work. As this is such a basic license, many other licenses require this as proof of a commercial business. For example, most banks will require you to furnish it if you want to open a current account.
