Many foreign companies have shown interest to start operations in India and ready to enter into the world’s fastest growing economy. Foreign entities prefer Indian subsidiary company registration because they can easily purchase the shares of any firm to enter the Indian market. Foreign entities save much of their time by directly investing in an established India company.
