As per the Government, the National Single Window System (NSWS), a digital platform for facilitating ease of doing business, is rapidly gaining traction amongst the investors community and as of date has about 3.7 lakh plus unique visitors.Around 44,000+ approvals have been facilitated through NSWS and 28,000+ approvals are currently under process. The portal will progressively onboard a greater number of approvals and licenses, based on user /industry feedback.
The portal currently accepts applications for 248 G2B clearances from 26 Central Ministries/ Departments, in addition to different State/UT Level clearances in 16 States/UTs.
The NSWS was envisioned to reduce duplicity of information submission to different ministries, reduce compliance burden, promote sector specific reforms and schemes, reduce gestation period of projects, and promote ease of starting and doing business. NSWS enables the identification, applying and subsequent tracking of approvals for all integrated States and Central Departments, making it a true National Single Window System
Further, the Know Your Approvals (KYA) service is live on NSWS with 544 approvals across 32 Central Ministries/ Departments and 2895 approvals across 30 States/ UTs. While a total of 3439 approvals are listed, 1,32,510 investors have used the KYA module to know about the type of approvals they need for their businesses.
Plans are on to integrate 5 more states (Haryana, Andaman & Nicobar, Tripura, Jharkhand and Arunachal Pradesh) to the portal by 15 December and a total of 71,000 approvals have been applied on NSWS till date.
