Major Initiatives on Improving ‘Ease of Doing Business’ in India

The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) has taken up a series
of measures to improve Ease of Doing Business. The emphasis has been on
simplification and rationalization of the existing rules and introduction of information
technology to make governance more efficient and effective. The measures taken are:

1. A comparative study of practices followed by the States for grant of clearance
and ensuring compliances was conducted through M/s Accenture Services (P)
Ltd. and six best practices were identified. These were circulated among all the
states for peer evaluation and adoption. The study has also identified important
bottlenecks faced by industries and important steps required to improve the
business environment in States.

2. Minister of State (Independent Charge), Commerce and Industries has
requested Chief Ministers of all the States and Administrators of all the UTs to
partner with DIPP in taking these initiatives forward to ease the business
regulatory environment in the country.

3. An interactive session was held by Cabinet Secretary with representatives of
the industries to identify factors impeding growth of manufacturing on 28th
November, 2014.

4. Application forms for Industrial Licence (IL) and Industrial Entrepreneur
