    Priya madam,
    You are right, but some of them mentioned above do not need even the amount you have specified. Yet all of them are in need of Field Knowledge, Ability to Communicate, Command over language, Valuable time, Office place Selection, maintenance, with Proper Planning(trained hands/alternate plan/etc.) and required Precautions.
    note:Very difficult to get trained hands,even if you get and pay them whatever they ask, either they are not willing to work or their out put is not to your satisfaction. Starting a business is easy. But running it is not a joke. You have to be on your toes till you have dependable staff who can work for you, Best wishes.
    Thank you
    with regards
