Indian IT giant Infosys on Monday unveiled a business (eBiz) portal of the Commerce Ministry's Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) for investors and businesses, the company said in a release. Infosys and DIPP has jointly launched India’s first Government-to-Business (G2B) portal in a public private partnership model. The portal was officially launched by Anand Sharma, Union Commerce, Industry and Textiles Minister, at the CII Partnership summit held at Agra.
The eBiz platform will provide a one-stop shop for convenient and efficient online G2B services relating to planning, starting and operating businesses in India including licenses, approvals, clearances, obtaining no objection certificates, permits and filing returns to reduce delays and complexity in obtaining information and services.
Infosys has launched the first phase of the project which will provide investors an interactive tool to assess license and permit requirements to set up and operate a business in India.
V. Balakrishnan, Member of the Board and Head - India Business Unit, Infosys, said, "The eBiz portal is a program of national importance and will provide better governance, transparency and ease of use for businesses in India. We are confident that our prior experience of working with the Income Tax department and our strong consulting and systems integration capabilities will enable us to continue executing the future phases of this project successfully."
As a part of the 10-year program, Infosys will roll-out services in a phased manner. In the first year of the three year-long pilot, 29 services will be unveiled in the five states of Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. Further, over the course of the second and third years, an additional 21 services will be launched and five additional states will be brought under the scope of this project. From the fourth year onwards, the project will see more than 200 services rolled-out across the country.
