For Setting up of industries in the Union Territory of Pondicherry, the entrepreneur/promoter has to obtain permission/clearances/license from the various departments and Commune Panchayats/Municipalities.

The promoter desirous of setting up of an industry has to first get "Entrepreneurs Memorandum - Part I" from the Department of Industries and Commerce. On receipt of the said certificate, the promoter is guided by Industrial Guidance Bureau in District Industries Centre, on the mode of applying for clearances from departments and to  Commune Panchayat/Municipality for issue of permission.
