FSSAI License and Registration for Restaurants – The Type!

FSSAI License and Registration for Restaurants – The Type!

The type of FSSAI license a restaurant will get depends on its scale of operations. Based on the business, there are three categories of FSSAI registration:

1. For small businesses, with a turnover of less than 12 lakh rupees, a Basic FSSAI Registration is done. The turnover is considered annually.

2. When the turnover is over 12 lakh rupees but under 20 crore rupees, yearly, then the business requires an FSSAI State License.

3. For any food business with a turnover above 20 crore rupees in a year, an FSSAI Central License is needed. This license is also applicable to companies that import or export food items.

The process to get an FSSAI license has been exceedingly simplified by the authorities. On the Food Licensing and Registration System, one can fill and submit an application online. The portal allows you to check for which license is your restaurant eligible before filling the application. Moreover, the system sends an alert via email or SMS when the license requires renewal. While the procedure is simple, it has no room for error because mistakes lead to severe consequences. For this reason, it is recommended to hire professionals to complete the registration process.

    The article does an excellent job of explaining the three types of licenses. I’d like to add that the steps to filing the application are equally simple. Just go to http://foodlicensing.fssai.gov.in, check your eligibility, create an account, fill the form, and then submit!

    For us, getting the license was a hassle because we completed the entire process on our own, which required a lot of time. Plus, the inspection and report were stretched. It took the complete 60 days to get the license! We’d advice roping in experts to help with the procedure.

    I stumbled upon this post while searching for professionals who could help with my FSSAI registration. While the article succinctly puts everything in words, it skips over the cost of the license. The FSSAI Registration is Rs. 100, the FSSAI State License is Rs. 2000 to Rs. 5000 and the FSSAI Central License is Rs. 7500 per year.

    We want to show our appreciation to VakilSearch, who helped get a license for our new restaurant without almost nil effort on our part. They even tracked our application with the reference number shared by the registration portal and kept us informed of the status at all times!
