      Hi Pradip,

      First, you need to join a free import-export course to learn the basics of import-export.
      Free import export course link-

      Then you need to do market research to identify the best product, remember nobody can help you to choose a product, it’s your responsibility to identify which you can understand easily.
      For Example, If I suggest you do the Metal and Plastic scrab import business it has the potential to generate huge money. But you can’t do this because to import scrab you need to do lots of documentation work.

      So, choose a product which you can sell easily with your expertise.
