I am 29 year and have started a small Printing and advertising ,design business from my residence. my business turn over not more then 1 lakh Over , service tax not applicable , the last week i have been trying to open a current account but have been unsuccessful. The problem is that all banks are asking for documents relating to municipal permissions. so it necessary to register the Sole Proprietorship firm in India?

In India there is no compulsion to register your propritoreship business. 


However it is always a problem with Indian Banks when propritore wishes to open a current A/c with Banks as banks require proof of Business. For your case they had asked Muncipal Registration. In such case my advice will be to approach Scheduled Co-Operative Banks rather than Nationalized banks. Co-Operative banks are more liberal and cusotmer friendly. 

You can give information about your business in brief on your letterhead to the concern bank and mentioned it clearly as it is a Start Firm. 99% Co - Operative banks will allow you to open your current A/c on self declaration basis
