Single Window bill passed to attract investors in Bengal
A bill seeking to help investors obtaining services required for setting up industries in West Bengal through a 'single window' was passed in the state assembly today.
The West Bengal Single Window System (Management, Control and Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill, 2017 would help investors get clearances in a smooth and time-bound manner through the Single Window System web portal, state Finance Minister Dr Amit Mitra said.
The Single Window System would be maintained by an agency, 'Silpa Sathi', which was established under the aegis of West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation (WBIDC).
The agency would be controlled by a 22-member High Powered Committee, the minister said.
The Single Window System shall have provisions for online submission of common applications, online payment, online approval, tracking of the status of applications and delivery of services.
The provision for sending alerts through SMS or e-mail to the applicant at various stages of clearance of applications would be there in the system, Mitra said.
The minister expressed hope that the new system would attract investors in the state.
