The most recent thousand startups, meanwhile, were identified in just 156 days.Over 80 startups are reportedly recognised each day, according to sources. The rate is the highest in the world. IT services account for 13% of all recognised start-ups, followed by healthcare & life sciences at 9%, professional & commercial services at 5%, education at 7%, and agricultural at 5%.

India's Start-Up Program:

The government established the Start-up India Program to create a supportive environment for new businesses. For such start-ups, this programme has evolved into a launching pad. This initiative facilitates legislative reforms to gain access to international festivals and events, supports intellectual property rights to facilitate public procurement, and provides funding for tax incentives. As a result, the initiative is now widely associated with sustainable economic growth.
