One of the biggest nations where food industry entrepreneurs are thriving is India. Restaurants and other eating establishments are commonplace in India. India's states are renowned for their rich range of culinary offerings. An applicant often receives an eating house licence before opening an eatery. Let's first define an eating house before getting into further detail regarding the establishment process.

An eating establishment is a public location where food is available for consumption. Any open space with refreshments is another description of a dining house. Any kind of juice is available as refreshment here (not including any form of alcohol beverages or spirits). The term "eating house" can therefore refer to any type of small store, restaurant, or food truck. The term "eating houses" typically refers to even a smaller street vendor offering meals for immediate consumption by the general public.

This kind of licence is typically issued by the local state police. For instance, the Delhi Police Act mandates the issuance of this type of licence for all types of eateries that are established within Delhi's territorial authority. As a result, the applicant would need to submit an application to the police department's state or city headquarters.
