So when you start ayurvedic distribution, marketing and the retail business, you can start by taking fssai license or the registration and you can purchase from any valid authorized ayurvedic manufacturing unit and start your business. 

If you are retailer, you can purchase from the distributor. If you are distributor you can purchase from the ayurvedic marketing or the manufacturing company. 

In addition if you want to sell your ayurvedic product online then you will also require to have a GST number for this. Actually GST number is on turnover basis. If you have annual 40 lakh above turnover then GST number is compulsory but for online sale or the interstate sale, if you want to sell to the other state or online then the GST number is compulsory for any turnover of business.

So you need to take GST number also if you want to start online sale of your ayurvedic medicine including siddha and unani medicine.
