    I am currently employed in a software company in Bangalore and interested in setting up wholesale drug business in Delhi along with my Father. As i understand based upon my the information, i have, firstly i need to get the wholesale drug distribution license. I guess we need to start the process in following order:-

    1.) Get the wholesale drug license and register my firm. As i understand, i don't think it needs a lot of investment other than that fact that, we need to have a office/store in commercial complex.
    2.) After we have got the license, we need to contact/apply different companies to get the dealership of their products. I am not really sure how easy/difficult it is to do this from investment point of view. Any guidance/inputs in this regard will be highly appreciated.
