All applications pertaining to industrial clearances will be routed through Enterprises Promotion Centre, the state said today.

Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has directed the departments concerned to route all applications pertaining to industrial clearances through Enterprises Promotion Centre (HEPC) and depute full time nodal officers in the Centre for ensuring time bound clearances under one roof, a release said.

Khattar said that though at present industrial clearances were being issued within maximum period of 45 days, yet efforts should be made to provide early clearances to the applicants.

The meeting was informed that 802 applications have so far been received at the HEPC with investment potential of Rs 47,571 crore and employment opportunities to 2,02,383 people.

It was also informed that 66 approvals such as consent to establish, operate, Change of Land Use, Building Plan Approval, permanent power connection, factory plan are given under one roof.
