But that doesn't break the heart of Indian startups ecosystem that is second largest in the world. The government has undertaken several other initiatives to boost the ecosystem, which is why India has moved up in the UN's Ease of Doing Business Ranking to the 77th position. This has given the much needed confidence to the globally acclaimed investors, MNCs leveraging Indian startups' services and even the young and old first-time-entrepreneurs. Topping this is the easier tax compliance for startups that will make all tax assessments electronic and ITR processing could be done within 24 hours, making it smoother for startups. Also, the government's move to liberalize the conditions for startups and investors to shield them from Angel Tax is another move for the community to celebrate. Now startups, whose aggregate amount of paid up share capital and share premium does not exceed Rs.10 crore after the proposed issue of shares, are eligible for angel tax exemption. While the ecosystem is all happy and encouraged, the next government and its initiatives will decide which way their happiness will travel further. But yes, whatsoever be it, there is no dearth of innovative startups being born in all spheres of industry verticals whom the governments engage with even for their defence, healthcare, education and other projects. Though the country is ready to go for election in the coming months, the enthusiasm of the community is high and expectations from the upcoming government is huge, especially to further the strong plinth laid by the present government. The war is always on for startups; but they are always ready to make India shine, proudly. Hence, we dedicate our current edition of CEO Insights to these startups and feature `10 Best Startups to Watch for 2019'. Read to know about their innovative solutions/services/products and their unique approach to deal with problems.
