As per Section 22 there are certain conditions subject to fulfilment of which registration must be taken. However, Section 24 enlists 10 types of persons who shall compulsorily obtain the registration even though these persons do not trigger the provisions prescribed under Section 22. Thus Section 24 is an overriding section that makes it mandatory to obtain registration by certain prescribed persons even though the conditions prescribed under section 22 are not met.
Further, the Government on the recommendations of the council may notify such other person or class of persons who are required to compulsorily obtain the registration.
