Autoparkindia.com is a startup venture established in May 2011. We a group of young automotive professionals (and we take pride to be one), came up with this idea to bring all automotive (mind it only automotive and no other industry) professionals & manufacturers, service providers, Consultants, traders, under one roof.
By now we have finalized most of our strategic decisions viz; our Vision, Our Business Model, Mission, long term goals, targets to be achieved etc. Now it is the time for us to deliver these strategies. Only when we deliver, would our dreams be achieved. Whereas Sagar and Pramod are taking care of the Website Development and the content management, I am taking care of all other activities.
The first step I identify to deliver our strategies is to register the company. Only then we would be able to do business in India satisfying our code of conduct (To follow an ethical and legal way to do business).
A company can either be registered as a Partnership firm, a Company (Private or a Limited) or a Limited Liability Partnership. I have done enough analysis (Thanks to Google) on the advantages and disadvantages of each and came to conclusion that a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP), which offers advantages of both a Partnership firm and a Company.
Here are the details of a LLP and the advantages and disadvantages it offers:
LLP is a partnership formed and registered under the LLP Act, 2008. LLP is a hybrid business structure combining the features of a Partnership Firm as well as Limited Liability Company. LLP is a body corporate with perpetual succession and has a separate legal identity distinct from its partners. Further, the liability of the partners is limited to their agreed contribution in the LLP which may be of tangible and/or intangible nature.
Advantages of a LLP:-
- Liability is limited to the extent of agreed contribution of partners.
- Formation is easy and less expensive.
- No limit on maximum numbers of partners.
- All partners not responsible for acts of defaulting partner.
- Operation easy, similar to existing partnership firms.
- Existing firms and companies can be converted to LLP.
- Lesser Compliance, Govt. intervention, statutory record then Company.
- Professionals also can form LLP to get Shield of Limited Liability.
- Audit exemption till capital / contribution of Rs.25 lacs or Turnover of Rs.40 lacs per annum.
Disadvantages of a LLP:-
- Not allowed to raise loans from Public.
- Action of single partner can bind LLP.
Thus, a LLP offers benefits of both a partnership firm as well as a company hence, Autoparkindia.com will be registered as a LLP.

With the basic idea in mind to have a website carrying the genuine database of Automotive professionals and Automotive manufacturers, the first challenge ahead was to name the website.
A) Name of the website:
We came up with a lot of names for the proposed website, but finally we freezed the current name i.e. www.autoparkindia.com. Although we wanted to have it named only as autopark.com but due to the unavailability of domain name we added India to it. This came in as a blessing in disguise, as we thought that the Indian Automotive industry itself is so huge to target to and also for the fact that our first steps towards achieving our dreams was to be put in this part of the world. Hence Autoparkindia.com came into being.
Hence if we break the name into three i.e. auto, park & India. Auto represents our intention to target only Automotive Industry (including Automotive OEM’s and Auto Ancillary Manufacturers). Park word has been thought off by us very critically. If we apply the analogy of a real park/garden to our website, we want to make our website, to make our customers comfortable, to promote green technology, to make it an ultimate destination for Auto manufacturers to grow their businesses and auto professionals to network with each other and grow together. India represents our dream destination.
B) The Logo: The second important step then was to have a brand logo for the website. Even at this stage we came up with ‘N’ number of ideas, but finally we freezed the below given logo.
The color combination:- Auto:- Blue is an apt color to represent Automotive industry, additionally we have indicated a sprocket at the place of ‘O’ to indicate that Automotive industry will always be at the center of our focus
- Park:- No other color than green would have been suitable to represent our intention to promote green technology and to give our customers a park/garden like experience as indicated above.
Also if you keenly observe you would find that the logo uses all small letters and not even a single capital letter, this indicates that even the smallest of the customers are important to us.
We believe that “Customer Satisfaction is key for our success and it would be the focus of each and every activity of ours”.
