Whereas, Business Register(BR) is a list of establishments, enterprises & such legal entities. It serves as a statistical database for the preparation and co-ordination of sample surveys. It is an important source of information for the statistical analysis of the business population, demography and it's behaviour.

Benefits of BR :

Designing a prescribed format and advising the enterprises to fill up the proforma so that the number of filing the returns of the enterprises can attain maximum.
Setting up a ‘single window system’ for receiving the returns from the enterprises and analyzing and processing the same.
Analyzing existing and potential business markets.
Assisting in marketing research.

Business register records all enterprise groups, enterprises and local units that are active in the national economy.The quality of a business register is determined by how closely it's contents reflect the reality. Therefore, important rules are made for minimum quality standards and are reviewed periodically to take account of changes in the purposes for which the register is used.

Main Activities:

This BR Form would generate a list of all establishments sectorwise, called District Business Register, which in turn serve as a useful data source for generation of district level statistical information and also a frame for conducting sectorwise survey of large units in the State. Likewise, in each district such a system would be developed. The overall administration of the web page would be the responsibility of the Director, DES, Jharkhand under the overall control of Principal Secretary/Secretary, Planning and Development Dept., Govt. of Jharkhand.
