Despite being a huge economy that ranks at number 3 in the GDP (PPP) league globally, India is a nation where the agriculture and unorganized sectors dominate employment generation. Contrary to what a lot of people may believe, we do not have a majority of our workforce employed by the organized sector.

The Indian workforce can be categorized by a simple and approximate formula – 65-35-15-85. Of the entire workforce, around 65% are engaged directly or indirectly in Agriculture, a massive number. This number will include farmers, farm labourers, transport workers, mandi workers, marketing people, rural business persons of all types etc. That leaves around 35% of Indian workforce, which we can call non-farm workforce. Of this 35%, not more than 15% are employed by the organized sector. They are paid salaries on fixed dates (almost), enjoy statutory benefits and can associate their work with some brandname of some credible size. The remaining 85% (of this 35%) are engaged in unorganized sector, that does not enjoy any of these characteristics. Are these not shocking statistics, for India, after nearly seven decades of economic independence? By the way, I have not counted homemakers and housewives, whose contribution anyway does not get counted in the GDP calculations.

We are a nation of 1.3 billion people (that’s 130,00,00,000 people). So it is clear there is abundance of labour available in India, that is untrained, unskilled (or at best partially skilled) and has a poor chance of making it in the formal organized sector. What do these people do? Well, they create small businesses of their own, and get on with their lives quietly.

Mainstream academia and media often speak disparagingly of these millions as “Mom-and-Pop” shops, because the comparison yardstick is the West, where most of retail is organized. But if these millions were to give up their businesses, and start pestering the governments of India (central and state) forSarkarijobs, the whole system will crumble and break down in no time. We should be very thankful to these entrepreneurs who quietly create opportunities for themselves, and even employ many more.

I assume by small. the question means really small, even micro. And “top 10” must be the range and spread. The ones I am listing below, are usually proprietorships of the most unstructured format. I am intentionally not counting the Small-scale enterprises in the manufacturing sector. I am also leaving out individual contractors that use the internet economy to work from home, on projects anywhere in the world (these are educated and very capable people).

In my opinion, ten of the smallest of businesses (not counting agriculture related work) that are widespread across India, totally taken for granted, and where literally crores of Indians (1 crore = 10 million) are self-employed, can be listed as:

  1. Small retail shops – Millions of them spread across the length and breadth of India. They are usually owned by a single family, and entire work is done by two or three members of the same family. They do not formally book every transaction, and issue no receipts. Hence, they generally pay no taxes at all. In fact, if they are forcibly dragged in the tax net, many of them will simply become unviable! So what will happen? Right now we have around 1 million young people entering the workforce each month. Or 1.2 crore each year. We will substantially increase the number if these shops collapse.
  2. Paan ki dukaan – Indians love their paan, supari, cigarettes, tobacco, and gutkha! And this gives birth to the legion of Paan Shops we see everywhere. They form a key part of the marketing plans of consumer goods giants like Unilever etc. As they say, the Ps of marketing are Product-Price-Promotion-P lace-and-Paan shops.
  3. Readymade Garment shops – Thousands of these small shops cater to the needs of the local communities they serve. While all conceivable brands are available in big malls, the small shops cater at an atomic level to their customers’ needs. And they are busy all year round. One can be often surprised at the economical rates these offer.
  4. Tea stalls – Popularly called chai-ki-tapri. these are hangout places (for a few minutes) for the local small office-goers, daily wage labourers, and anybody passing by. Usually run by a single entrepreneur, they employ chhotus, young boys barely 8 or 10 years of age. It can be seen everywhere in India. They serve tea (of coffee), some basic snacks like pakoras, etc. Wholesomely unhealthy if taken on a daily basis.
  5. Auto Repair shops – If you do not wish to spend a lot of money to get your vehicle (2 wheeler or 4 wheeler) repaired at the branded sales outlet or service centre, then the roadside repair shop is always at your disposal. Business is always brisk, and the technicians working can be amazingly skilled.
  6. Mobile repair / accessories shops – The past few years have seen employment generation through this route. Tiny shops that are run by just one or two people can cater to a vast range of your repair / recharging needs. Found almost everywhere.
  7. Grocery Daily need shops – A type of the small retail shops. Some of them are organizedkirana stores, others much smaller but equally useful. They develop customer relationships through home delivery, some credit, and informal support for a range of needs. Usually have dedicated and loyal clienteles. The arrival of organized retail has, so far, not affected them much.
  8. Small restaurants / coffee shops – Lots of them dot the highways as dhabas. or all commercial roads in cities of all sizes. They are usually much cheaper compared to branded cafes. I remember enjoying a hearty meal (for a family of four) for Rs 36 when we hungrily went to a very small “south Indian” restaurant on a mountain side in Munnar, Kerala. What a meal it was! And what a rush the restaurant was handling. Such experiences make you want to become a food entrepreneur (the yummy margins! ).
  9. Seasonal shops – Every festival in India brings unique buying needs, and that leads to sprouting of such shops in specific areas of all towns and cities. So, during the Ganesh Chaturthi festivals, shops spring up overnight selling pooja samagri (material for religious prayers) and idols. Similarly, Deepawali sees fire-cracker shops and Holi brings with it gorgeously colourful temporary shops. All dealings are naturally in pure cash!
  10. Hawkers of all types – Not to be outdone by the above, we have a whole range of hawkers who shout themselves hoarse strutting their stuff door-to-door, all day long. They do this on bicycles, or thelas, and it must be very exhausting work.

I personally feel that society ought to respect these individuals much more that it currently does. They are the most basic building blocks of our goods and services markets. The entrepreneurial streak of these unsung heroes can be very motivating if we see the sheer struggle their daily lives entail.

As India moves forward, while our economy will get more structured, the simultaneous growth of our population is going to make formal employment generation a huge challenge. Interesting times ahead!

There is a contradiction in the question: What are the top 10 internet business models that are currently the most profitable and easiest to copy in a new market?

The most profitable business model will not be the easiest to copy since by definition anyone can copy that business model, compete with the original business model and so bring down the profits of the business model as a whole.

Examples of most profitable internet business models typically depend on dominating the long-tail. This requires these businesses to operate at a lower cost than if manual / human processing was required, and capitalize on improving the signal to noise ratio using algorithms at scale. It is difficult for substitute businesses to develop the same scale later as collecting huge amounts of long-tail data takes a long time (years)

Google search: Have data on long-tail search terms and creates a market place where participants can bid to reach most relevant customers.

Amazon.com: Have organized information of long-tail products for sale and offer unparalleled selection, prices are reasonable, inventory overheads are low (they need to stock a few items globally compared to a few items per physical store)

Ebay: Created an auction marketplace where buyers can bid for long-tail products offered by sellers world-wide. The larger the number of buyers, the larger the number of sellers and Ebay makes a cut off each transaction.

Wikipedia or Yahoo Answers: Long-tail content is generated by users at little / low expense to the company, content is relevant and used years after it was originally created. Bulk of the content is accessed only a few times every month but collectively drives billions of page views a month. This can be harvested by basic online advertising.

Healthcare is undeniably India s largest sector nowadays in terms of both revenue and employment. Healthcare as a whole comprise hospitals, medical devices / equipments, outsourcing, medical tourism and health insurance.

Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India, a multinational professional service company has estimated that the overall Indian healthcare market today is worth US$ 100 billion and will likely to grow at a CAGR of 23 per cent to US$ 280 billion by 2020.

The Indian medical tourism industry is pegged at US$ 3 billion per annum, with an estimated 230,000 medical tourists arriving in the country. This is expected to double sharply in the next four years to US$ 6 billion.

The healthcare segment has attracted Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) worth US$ 3.41 billion between April 2000 and December 2015, according to the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP).

With this sharp increase, India requires 600,000 to 700,000 additional beds over the next five to six years, indicative of an investment opportunity of US$ 25-30 billion. Given this demand for capital, the number of transactions in the healthcare space is expected to witness a sharp increase in the near future. Increase in number of transactions means a healthy rise in Revenue Cycle Management (RCM) provided the RCM company adapts a holistic approach to the process and provide a complete solution. Those firms that follow this practice will be in a position to grab larger share of market in the future.

Other than this, the outsourced market in the healthcare segment is estimated to be around US$ 8 billion, a majority of which is in the US, followed by India. In a flourishing trend, most of the US Healthcare providers are outsourcing their non-core processes like RCM to third-party service providers in other English speaking countries, where India is choosen as a favourabe destination.

The competitive advantage that India has is her large pool of English speaking, talented, well trained professionals with good analytical skills which is essential for BPO indusry, not to mention the cost competitiveness compared to other English speaking countries. The matured medical education system in the country is also widely appreciated abroad.

Eventhough, apprehensions existed few years back about India s ability to handle complex US healthcare process, now they have been removed, as the RCM players have invested wisely for training and upgradation of systems with in the organisation.

So far the major RCM companies in India have been focussing on large sized hospitals in US, the less than 500 bed mid sized hospitals are untouched. This niche market will become attractive in the coming years for RCM companies to work on.

With the internal development in healthcare business with in the country along with the outsourced businesses, the RCM business in India has a tremendous growth opportunity in the coming years.

What is required to grab a major pie of this business is to keep investing money and time to employ / train periodically the healthcare management personnel and invest on the advanced technology to store, manage and analyse, data which helps in automating the RCM process. With these in place, no stopping India as a future leader in Revenue Cycle Management.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who held wide-ranging talks with his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc, said the two countries have decided to elevate their strategic ties to a Comprehensive Strategic Partnership to provide it a new momentum.

In his last public speech before demitting office, Reserve Bank Governor Raghuram Rajan made a vigorous case for a strong and independent central bank that can say ‘no’ to highest echelons of the government to ensure macroeconomic stability.

At present, around three-fourths of the revenues of telcos operating in India are generated from voice calls. With its unlimited free calling offer, Jio is hitting the telcos where it hurts most. The biggest threat, therefore, is the possibility of customers migrating to Jio.

DLF had in May entered into an amended agreement to sell its 32 screens of DT cinemas to multiplex operator PVR at a revised consideration of Rs 433 crore.

Playing spoilsport for the RJIO ultra cheap 4G offer are the existing market players. Telcos including Bharti Airtel, Idea and Vodafone India are locking horns with RIL.

Small Business Ideas in India

At present, there are a large number of young professionals who are looking to earn quick money with minimal investment. And with India’s growing economy, there are a lot of possibilities where one can venture into. The ‘Startup India, Standup India’ programme announced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Independence Day has been successfully inaugurated in Mumbai’s Thane district. In addition, the Union Finance Minister Arun Jaitley has assured the startups that both the government as well as the banking system would be making resources available to them. As someone who’s intending to enter the world of business, you can soon find a special tax regime that would enable you to foster innovation to an optimum.

Here is a list of business ideas that novice entrepreneurs, having minimal finance options, can utilise to earn maximum profit in minimal return period.

Starting Off with Rs. 1,000

A great business idea to start off with nearly Rs. 1,000 is ultra-short temping services. As a part of this business, the companies provide manpower services on a temporary basis to event management firms. The break-even period for this business is close to 10 months and a gross profit of approximately 20 percent can be expected. An important skill needed to make this business a success is networking. Organizing private tuitions is yet another excellent business idea to earn a handsome income with Rs. 1000. You can plan to be a private tutor by grabbing adequate knowledge about a particular subject. All you need to do is occasional investments associated with purchase of new books in case there is a change of syllabus.

Business Idea for an Investment of Rs. 7,000

A good business idea with a budget as minimal as Rs. 7,000 is a shoe-wash company. Earlier, canvas shoes were cleaned using old toothbrushes and detergent; however, nowadays people have moved on to trendy sneakers and want the shoes to be cleaned by people who are experts in the field, so that the shoes can be maintained properly.

In order to be successful in this business, it is essential to know how to use chemicals and a fair degree of marketing skills are also required. The break-even period for this form of business is at least three months. The businessmen can expect a gross profit of nearly 40 percent in this case.

Business Idea for an Investment of Rs. 15,000

Having a food delivery service is a great business idea if a person has around Rs. 15,000 with them. Nowadays, customers want the best food on their tables without making the efforts to go and get it and this is where a food delivery company can come in handy.

The main skills needed to run this business smoothly are sales and management. This business has a break-even period of two months at the very minimum and can provide gross profits of nearly 20 percent.

Business Ideas with INR 20,000

If a person wants to start a business with Rs. 20,000, they can start making uniforms. Nowadays, even business schools and medical and law colleges are making it mandatory for their students to wear uniforms. Interested businessmen can establish contacts with uniform manufacturing companies and provide dresses at convenient prices. The most important skill in this business is man management and it takes almost a year to break even.

Business Ideas for an Investment of Rs. 50,000

Property management can be a great business idea if you have a start-up capital of approximately Rs. 50,000. The businessmen need to find out a proper workplace and take responsibility for their detailed documentation procedures and thus save a lot of their time. Adequate sales and marketing skills are needed in order to be successful in this business. The company can achieve break-even status within a month and expect a gross profit of around 50 percent. Yet another profitable business venture in this range is phone-based business consulting services. These days, several entrepreneurs are looking to make a name for themselves and the time is right for experienced businessmen to make the most of their skills and knowledge and guide these young enthusiasts with some good business plans. Networking is a critical skill needed to flourish in this business that can take almost four months to come on break-even terms.

Wedding planning is also a good business idea when you have got Rs. 50,000 to start with. Today, wedding ceremonies in India are being organised and celebrated on grand scales and the celebrators might not have the time to properly attend to every little nuance as a lot of time is required in this as well. Wedding planners can help people in such situations. Creativity is the name of the game in this business domain that can provide gross profits of almost 15 percent. However, achieving break-even status will depend on the quality of projects that the company gets.

Concierge services such as babysitting and medical treatment can be started with an initial capital of Rs. 50,000 or more. Network communication capabilities are the most critical skills required to do well in this business that can take at least half a year to achieve parity and give approximate gross profits of 10 percent.

Housekeeping services for hotels is a proper business idea if an entrepreneur has Rs. 50,000 to start with. With the hotels looking to keep their rooms sparkling clean, this is a good business idea. Good communication and man management skills are necessary to succeed in this domain. This business can provide gross profits of almost 20 percent.

Business Idea for an Investment of Rs. 75,000

Pre-recruitment assessment is a profitable business venture if the entrepreneur has a starting capital of around Rs. 75,000. This service can be helpful in letting companies hire the best possible employees. The companies in this domain can chip in by creating the tests at different levels and then evaluating the candidates based on their performance in the same. Good marketing and sales capabilities are necessary for good performance in this domain. The minimum breakthrough period for this business is two months and it can provide gross profits of nearly 25 percent.

Business Idea for an Investment of Rs. 1,00,000

Entrepreneurs looking to offer custom-made chocolates for their customers can get started with almost Rs. 1,00,000. Making chocolates as per food quality standards is a prerequisite. It is important to love chocolates and be creative to thrive in this business. Expected gross profit in this segment can vary between 30 and 35 percent and the minimum period required to achieve parity is a week.

Business Idea for an Investment of Rs. 2,00,000

If an entrepreneur knows intercity and interstate bus routes really well and has almost Rs. 2,00,000 to invest straight away, then a bus service website can be regarded as a good business opportunity. The website can also provide information pertaining to the ticket rates and the channels for booking them.

However, it is essential to have good IT skills to be successful in this business. The minimum period needed to achieve break even in this business is five months and the expected gross profit is close to 10 percent.

Business Ideas for an Investment of Rs. 3,00,000

A good business idea with a start-up capital of Rs. 3,00,000 is that of custom-made festival gifts. The entrepreneurs can choose innovative gifts, wrap them in an eye-catching manner and then send them to their clients. The entrepreneurs need to be sensitive, creative and understanding and have a good knowledge of gift-makers in the town. It can take at least three months to achieve parity in this business, which can be expected to provide gross profits of almost 20 percent.

Entrepreneurs with such start-up capital can also go for the online ads service business. They can have contacts with the website owners and then get the appropriate space, which can help the clients get access to their target audience.

The owners should have good knowledge of networking and media planning in order to be successful in this business. The minimum time required to come to break-even status in this business is a year and the anticipated gross profit is 20 percent.

#business quiz

Personally, my favorite questions are those which have me wide-eyed and wondering –Seriously? – when the answer gets revealed. Two that come to my mind:

1. What will be offered by Kashi Vishwanath temple in association with Shri Prakash Raghuvanshi?

This was asked by Pickbrain at Tata Corporate Crucible, Gurgaon in Sept 12.
