How to export scrap metal to India?

Question

Hi

My Uncle is doing metal scrap import business in India and asking me to export HMS 1&2 scrap from UK to India.
He is looking to buy around 100-500mt/month minimum.

As I am a new bee I am not sure about these procedures:
What License or certificate i need to have?
How can i get continuous suppliers for HMS 1&2 scrap metal?
what will be the average freight cost from UK port to Chennai(India) for a 40ft HC?
Any other government permissions needed?

Please need some help in these and any business guide will be beneficial,

Thanks

Vijay
