All depts to integrate with eBiz platform by December end

Tags: News
To provide one-stop clearance platform for investment proposals, the government today said all central government departments and ministries will integrate their services with the 'eBiz platform' on priority by December end.

The eBiz platform aims to create a business and investor friendly ecosystem in India by making all business and investment related clearances and compliances available on a 24x7 single portal, with an integrated payment gateway.

"All Central Government Departments and Ministries will integrate their services with the eBiz platform on priority by 31 December this year," Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said while presenting Budget 2014-15.

The eBiz project is one of the integrated mission mode projects under the National e-Governance Plan of the government. The project also aims at improving India's ranking in ease of doing business.

As many as 26 central and 24 state services were integrated with the portal, but the Environment and Forest Ministry and the Central Board of Excise and Customs (CBEC) had some reservations about the project.

According to a World Bank report, India ranks at 134th position out of 189 economies.
