The eBiz-project being implemented will create an investor centric hub-and-spoke based online single window model for providing clearances and filing compliances, DIPP said, adding that it will provide a single platform to avail business and investment related services.
This project will result in radical improvements in ease of doing business by reducing time, efforts and costs taken in obtaining clearances and
ensuring compliances. Integration with central government services is being done on highest priority, DIPP said.
In order to improve the regulatory business environment, all departments and state governments have been requested to take measures on priority basis such as mandatory filing of all returns on-line through a unified form; no inspection should be undertaken without the approval of the head of the department and for all non-risk, non-hazardous businesses a system of self-certification should be introduced.
The government has also done away with the requirement of affidavit from the applicants of the defence industry. Further, a maximum timeline of 12 weeks has been finalised by ministry of home affairs for grant of security clearance on industrial licence applications.
