Interview With : Gaurav Bansal, CEO of Registrationwala
Updated on: 30 Jun 2016
Forms are undoubtedly the most important factor for the conception of procrastination. For great inventors and entrepreneurship to take form, there are a ridiculous number of regulations involving complex or simply annoying paperwork. India has an undying fascination for red-tapism, specifically designed to slow down great ideas to take form. Even if you're not into business, even everyday basic citizen tasks require a tremendous amount of paperwork to be filled, often with obsolete languages and requires you to run around from one corner of the town to another. Even if you do manage to take a leave from all your tasks and accomplish those, business working hours and painfully long queues means the task to get anything from a driving license to registering for a new sim card will be excruciating. Luckily, there's finally a startup that claims to be a one stop for almost all your registration requirements.
We had an exclusive chat with the CEO of registrationwala, Gaurav Bansal on his entrepreneurial journey. Here are some excerpts:
Please share your educational background and working experience. Was entrepreneurship something you always wanted to do? I am a qualified CA with a mind of an engineer. I don't have a MBA, or a fancy degree from an IIT. I just had an above average tolerance for risk and an idea with the confidence to convert it into reality. I'm a Bansal, a Baniya who belongs to a business family, entrepreneurship is in my blood. I was born with it.
