The commerce and industry ministry is looking to engage consultants to promote the government’s Start-up India campaign for budding entrepreneurs.

The department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP), under the ministry, has issued an advertisement for engaging a senior consultant and two consultants for the Start-up India initiative.

It has invited applications from eligible candidates for “engagement as senior consultant/consultant on contractual basis”.

It said the job responsibilities for the senior consultant include assessment of the existing start-up ecosystem in the country, identifying the national and international best practices, making recommendations to facilitate growth of start-ups and monitoring implementation of action plans, schemes and programmes.

Those of the consultants would be identification of challenges and opportunities for start-ups in India and assisting the department in terms of producing research documents related to current functioning and challenges, among others.

Under the ‘Start-up India Action Plan’, the government announced incentives, including tax holiday and inspector raj- free regime, besides capital gains tax exemption and Rs 10,000 crore corpus to fund them.
