Asit Tripahty appointed Odisha Chief Secretary

Progress of district-level business reforms action plan reviewed

Bhubaneswar: Chief Secretary Asit Tripathy on Thursday reviewed the progress of the implementation of District Level Business Reforms Action Plan (BRAP) aimed at improvement of the state’s position in the crucial Ease of Doing Business parameter.

The objective of the district level BRAP is to usher in district level and licensing reforms and thereby improving the index of ease of doing business which in turn will enable faster future growth of the state economy.

Under this plan, the state aims to eliminate the requirement of renewal of certificates/ approvals/ licenses obtained by businesses from the authorities at the state level. 

The state is also planning to include additional services under Central Inspection Framework, which was in successful operations for more than three years.

In the meeting, it was reviewed that several services of different Departments are already made online and some services are under the process to be available in online mode.

IPICOL is the nodal agency for co-ordinating with other departments for implementation of the district level BRAP.

The team of officials of IPICOL led by its Managing Director Nitin Jawale is working hard to achieve the implementation of the plans within the specified dates.
