You don't need any investment to begin with. Either start selling on Amazon / Flipkart if they allow the category - OR setup your own eCommerce store. You could make use of the social media and WhatsApp to spread the word out. 

However, that depends upon the market you are targeting. What kind of products are you planning to sell?

thank you for your reply @Kaustubh Katdare . that was really helpful. i am planning for handmade gifts. i would take requirements from customers and make gifts according to them.

In that case, you'll need to develop a custom solution. I'd recommend starting very small with a page on Facebook - and accept orders from it. You can tie up with shipping service provider to get shipping rates really low - say ~ INR 60 - 70 per shipment. That should be a good way to start.
