Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Friday approved necessary changes in rules to enable applicants like labour contractors, traders and industrialists get necessary permits in three days.
"Now, those applying for permits under the Shops and Establishment license and permits to start factories, will get them in three days," an official release said.
Failure to grant permits within this period would be deemed as "permit granted", the release said.
Fadnavis has also decided to modify the Contract Labour (Regulation and Abolition) Rules, 1971 to enable a labour contractor to get registration permit within three days of application, it said.
Earlier, labour contractors used to get such permissions for a one-year period, but as per the latest norms, they would get these for an indefinite period.
