UP hooks on to the web to encourage investments

Uttar Pradesh has mandated a web-based single window clearance system for fresh investment proposals in all 75 districts and, for all categories of industries.

The facility, ‘Nivesh Mitra’, has been in existence since 2009 in select districts, initially as a pilot. Now, the advanced system will allow of application forms and fees, and will have vigorous online monitoring at all levels.

The system seeks to facilitate transparency, speed up and ease the process of setting up enterprises and improve the business environment in UP. The latest government order includes 30 districts, which were earlier outside the purview of Nivesh Mitra, for online clearance sought to set up small, medium and large-scale enterprises.
