Project Office Registration

Project Office Registration

A foreign company can establish a project office in India either on a temporary basis or a permanent project office, provided the foreign company has been awarded a project to be executed by them in India from the government or private sector. Registration of Project Office with RBI & ROC must be completed before it starts operating. There are certain conditions which need to be fulfilled before an application is moved for Project Office Registration.

To register a project office an application is made with the Category 1 AD Bank with a complete set of documents including the copy of the project agreement and an undertaking that the project shall be funded with inward remittance from abroad or through an arrangement with the bilateral or multilateral international finance agency. After approval of the application by the RBI, the project office needs to be registered with the ROC and local police within 30 days of such approval.
