Frequently asked questions

Question 01. Do I have to apply for license for each category?

Answer:

You would want to sell products from the following categories:

  • Cattle food.
  • Horticultural inputs.
  • Agricultural inputs.

The best thing is that you have to only attach self declaration certificate for not selling that particular product, e.g., cattle feed.

Question 02: Can I sell products of any company after getting a license?

Answer: You can’t sell any product. For example, you can only sell a product, if you have a principal’s certificate of that product. You can’t sell seeds of Syngenta without its Principal’s Certificate.

Question 03. Why is this necessary?

Answer: There are many agricultural, horticultural, and insecticide shops in India. The owners of many shops don’t have license, and it is illigal.

    I have done bsc in chemistry …my family is opening agriculture shop of fertiliser seeds etc and they are submitting my graduation certificate for the license and after that i will authorised that to my uncle…if i will do govt job in future then will this effect on my job

    1. Technically, No.

      A government employee can’t run an Agricultural Shop using own legal license.

      Example:

      One of my senior colleague (gov. employee) is running Agriculture Shop but with a legal license to his brother’s name who has degree of B. Sc. Ag.

      Thanks!
