Positive Actions from the Government
Many of you may remember that one of the first whitepapers we submitted to the Government was on Making Doing Business Easy with a lot of emphasis on Making it easy to register a business/start up in India and a Single Window Clearance.
We are pleased to share that, the Modi Government has taken a step forward to achieve the goal through the Make in India campaign, for which it has decided to reduce the business registration period in India from 27 days to one day in a few months from now.
To ensure that Make in India campaign starts as early as possible, the Central Government has eased and simplified several rules and regulations trying to make India a friendlier investment zone in the world.
The government has introduced the following reforms – single registration for all labour laws, overhaul of tax systems, reduction in the number of permits required, easing up property registration, quick electricity connection and property registration – which will be taken care by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP)
Many of the policy announcements in the last 4 months, lead us to believe that our whitepapers are being reviewed and acted upon. Code of Conduct for MPs, Single Clearance Window, Online Attendance Tracking, More effective working of Bureaucracy, Labor Reforms, Reduction in Fuel Prices, A citizen friendly Railway Budget are all steps in the right direction. We hope sooner or later we will see actions on many other fronts like Women Safety, Tackling Communalism, Fighting Corruption, etc.
I sincerely Thank You for participation in the Transform India circle and look forward to your continued engagement.
Wishing all circle members a very Happy Diwali 2014!
