VISAKHAPATNAM:Rolling out the red carpet for investors, Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu offered to issue clearances to industrial projects in 21 days by issuing a deemed-to-be certificate from the newly-launched single desk system. He released the industry mission document and also launched the much-awaited single desk portal at a conclave of industrialists held here on Wednesday.
After unveiling the industrial policy, the Chief Minister said that the single desk system was introduced to end red tapism and delay in project clearances.
“We will have separate desks for each sector and all that the investor has to do is walk in with the proposals and necessary documents. In case there is any delay in any department, the Commissioner of Industries has been empowered to issue a deemed-to-be clearance certificate to enable the investors to commence spade work on the project immediately. Mega projects will be dealt on a case-to-case basis,” he said.
Naidu, who addressed a galaxy of industrialists from India and abroad, said the state would emerge very strong on the industrial front in the coming years, due to its industry-friendly policy. He was confident that a double digit growth is a realistic and achievable target for both the country and the state.
“The world is bullish about India and Andhra Pradesh in particular,” he added.
