After notifying the highest investment in Odisha during COVID-19, the state government has decided to focus on ‘ease of doing business‘ through the ground-level implementation of the Business Reform Action Plan for the year 2020-21.
This came into notification under a high-level meeting held on digital mode under Chairmanship of Chief Secretary Asit Tripathy on Monday.
Reviewing progress in business reforms introduced by different departments, the Chief Secretary directed to foster the user base of online Government-to-Business services.
Tripathy directed to make all BRAP scheduled G2B services end-to-end online with payment gateways.
The departments asked to stop offline delivery of G2B services and deliver the online services within a specified time limit.
He directed to put all online services in the framework of the Odisha Right to Public Services Delivery Act and introduce a time limit for actual delivery of services like NOCs, licenses, permissions, certificates, clearances, conversion of land category etc.
Principal Secretary Industry Hemant Sharma stated that “Around 301 state-level action points have been listed for implementation for the current year evaluation. During the last month, it has been substantial progress and growth in the performances of these points.
Around 136 points have already been compiled by various departments.”
Sharma said that the ‘Mo Sarkar’ and 5-T doctrines of state government have helped trigger many services online.
It has also been directed to the departments to provide evidence of ground-level implementation of each reform point with user feedback to the IPICOl, the nodal agency to ensure implementation of projects in the state.
