Chandigarh, April 10

Haryana has been placed at the first position in the ease of doing business ranking of states by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) of the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India.

The ranking is based on compliance to 330 of 369 action points under the Business Reforms Action Plan (BRAP) as per which the state has scored cent per cent.

Though Haryana has been declared the best state, the final ranking will come after a feedback from applicants who have sought industry-related clearances from the state government.

The DIPP will award 39 points after completing the exercise in another five weeks and give the final score of each state.

In the ease of doing business, Haryana was placed at the 14\th position in 2015. While the state was at the sixth position in 2016, it bagged the fourth position in 2017.

Principal Secretary, Industries, Haryana, Sudhir Rajpal, attributed the state’s consistent rise in ranking to the single-roof online portal for all industry-related services, including clearances for setting up new units and also expansion of the existing industry. The portal offers over 70 services and involves a number of departments.

“The chief feature of the portal is that it is mandatory to apply online for any service. All clearances are granted online without the need for any human interface. There is no need for an applicant to visit any office,” Rajpal stated.

Launched in May last year, as many as 10,000 clearances have been given through the portal which gets over 350 applications every week for various kinds of clearances.

“Every service comes with a time-frame within which it is has to be cleared or rejected. A maximum of 30 days have been given to the department for clearance, failing which it is deemed to have been cleared. Within 45 days, the clearance is sent in writing to the applicant,” the Principle Secretary explained.

The portal is open to public viewing and applicants can know the status of their clearances. “After attaining the top position, we are hopeful of retaining the top spot even on the completion of the feedback exercise,” Rajpal said.

Meanwhile, as per the “implementation scorecard” of the BRAP, Haryana is followed by Chhattisgarh, while Gujarat is at the ninth spot, Himachal Pradesh at 16th, Punjab at 20th and Chandigarh at the 28th position.
