The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) is organising a soft launch of the National Single Window System and Industrial Park Rating System. The National Single Window System will allow investors to identify and apply for various pre-operations approvals required for commencing a business in India.
“This would provide end-to-end facilitation, support, including pre-investment advisory, information related to land banks and facilitating clearances at Central and State levels,” it added. It said that the Industrial Park Rating System (IPRS) recognizes best performing parks, identifying interventions and serving as a decision support system for investors and policy makers. The IPRS 2.0 will widen its coverage and aim to bring in qualitative assessment further to the pilot phase.
“Under IPRS 2.0, the assessment of industrial parks including private industrial parks and SEZs with introduction of qualitative indicators for assessing these parks/zones is being undertaken across parameters identified under the four pillars – Internal infrastructure and utilities, External infrastructure and Connectivity, Business Support Systems, and Environmental and Safety Management,” the ministry said.
