There are many small business ideas in India that are successful. A successful idea in one city can be replicated in another city like Delhi because the Indian population is quite large and homogeneous. There are many successful business ideas doing the rounds on the Internet, which do not require any investment.

When you start a business you need to look at how scalable it is and how profitable your venture can be.
