    NEW DELHI: The government will set up a pan-India single-window clearance system for entrepreneurs to provide pre-investment advisory and information related to land banks besides facilitating clearances as it eyes higher investments and ease of doing business in India.

    The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) plans to set up an investment clearance cell for applying for licences and incentives given by both central and state governments. Separately, it is also looking at developing a single application form for all kinds of clearances and deemed approvals.

    To be set up in four phases, the Investment Clearance Cell will onboard all central government-related procedures and clearances in a single online form. In addition, legislation has also been proposed to mandate time-bound clearances of central government-related permissions.

    Currently, a new investor has to apply at different central departments for getting permissions like GST registration, industrial entrepreneur memorandum, import-export codes, environment clearance, EPF and ESIC registration, as well as company incorporation. It is proposed to have all these and other statutory permissions in a single online form.
