The sector needs to be developed further as it has high potential to generate jobs in the country, he added.

"We had come out with model guidelines on direct selling in September 2016. So far, Sikkim and Chhattisgarh have adopted (them)," Chaudhary said at an Assocham event.

Karnataka, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu are in the process of implementing the norms. "We cannot force states to adopt the guidelines. However, we hope more states will implement it," he added.

The guidelines, which offer clarity on the direct selling sector, has prohibited pyramid as well as money circulation schemes in the garb of direct selling business.

On industry's demand to frame a separate law, the minister, on the sidelines of the event, said: "We are going slow on this. We will do it gradually. First, we have issued guidelines and the next step is framing a law. We will certainly think on these lines." Earlier addressing the event, the minister said a progressive legislation is required as there is still some "drawback" in the system.

Any business can grow if the regulatory systems are in place to facilitate production to marketing of products, he added, highlighting the government schemes, including Start-Up India launched to encourage entrepreneurs.
