In a step towards providing major relief to entrepreneurs, the administration has decided to start a single-window system for the industry. 

Sources said VP Singh Badnore, Governor of Punjab and Administrator of Chandigarh, would launch the single-window system website tomorrow. The system has been developed by the Department of Industries with the aim of providing better environment for the ease of doing business in Chandigarh.

Kavita Singh, Secretary, Industries, said with the  new system, setting up of an industry or any other related work of existing industries would become easier than earlier as the approval would be given online. The system will ensure timely permission from all departments. 

Under the system, all departments of the administration have appointed nodal officers to ensure online permission. A timeline has been fixed for every approval related to business. Under the system, decentralisation of power for permissions will be ensured, said Kavita Singh, adding that all these plans are aimed at removing bottlenecks and encouraging opportunities for industry in the city 

Arun Mahajan, president of the Industries Association, said it was a right step but the administration should make sure that the timeline should be followed strictly for giving permission.
