The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India, announced the launching of eBiz, India's first Government-to-Business (G2B) portal which has been developed by Infosys in a public private partnership model.
The eBiz portal which aims at transforming and developing a conducive business environment in India, was launched by the Minister of Commerce, Industry and Textiles Anand Sharma at the CII Partnership Summit in Agra.
The eBiz platform will provide a one-stop shop for convenient and efficient online G2B services for the investor and business communities in India, reducing delays and complexity in obtaining information and services. It will serve as a gateway to obtain services relating to planning, starting and operating businesses in India including licenses, approvals, clearances, obtaining non objection certificates, permits and filing returns.
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.
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.
eBiz adheres to global e-Governance standards under the national e-Governance Plan of the Government of India. It is an integrated Mission Mode Project that aims at providing Central Government, State Government and Local Administration related services.
At the BSE, Infosys closed Monday's trading at Rs.2,810.05, down 0.16 percent from the previous close.
