I am writing to convey my appreciation to the staff at Group for the services rendered to obtain the incorporation of my company in India. I found the professionalism of the staff at Group, a pleasure to work with. As a foreigner to India, they took the time to explain the documentation and assisted in every question I raised. I was pleased that Group made a case for my business name and that I received the name that I wanted. I was completely satisfied with their service and strongly recommend them to anybody desirous of starting a business in India
