We suggest that you should first of all get the brand name of your business registered under Trade Mark Act.

Further no person can then carry on similar business with your brand name.

Further, according to Article 21 a person has right to live, so we cannot restrict any one to carry on business similar to yours, however we can restrict them to carry such business with similar brand name as yours.
