In order to boost industrialisation, the state government has provided web-based single window facilities to all 75 districts. The online facilities to all districts are aimed at expediting the proposal for setting up industries.
The government has made it mandatory for setting up all kinds of large, medium and small-scale enterprises in the state. However, keeping in view the practical difficulties, micro enterprises have been provided with an option to either apply through Nivesh Mitra or manually.
According to information, industry-friendly web-based single window clearance system would provide transparency, speed and simplify the process of setting up of enterprises. It would ensure time-bound issuance of required clearances, approvals and no objection certificates (NOCs) to entrepreneurs for setting up units. Stipulated fee for different procedures could be paid through net banking.
Infrastructure and Industrial Development Commissioner (IIDC) AK Gupta said, “It is a unique information technology based facility, envisaged to mitigate hitherto obvious barriers in facilitating investment by ensuring convenience to business and responsiveness from government with minimal human intervention.”
Special secretary, Infrastructure Development Kaushal Raj Sharma said that for efficient execution of nivesh mitra project, authorised officers of departments had been directed to ensure installation of required infrastructure in all districts, as it had been made mandatory to apply through Nivesh Mitra to set up enterprises excluding micro-scale units.
“All the concerned nodal officers of departments have been trained on operational aspects of working on nivesh mitra,” Sharma said.
In order to use the time and money saving facility, entrepreneurs simply required to visit portal - 'www.udyogbandhu.com' and apply online through this interactive software. To help the applicants and investors, user manuals, flowcharts and tutorials are also available online.
At present services in 12 departments- industries, power, factories, fire safety, electrical safety, pollution control, forest, excise, commercial tax, food, labour and drugs- are available through Nivesh Mitra.
