Odisha government has reduced the time required for giving various approvals through its e-biz portal for investors to promote ease of doing business in the State.

While earlier seven days were required for registration of industries, it has now been reduced to one to three days, officials said.

Similarly, the time taken for land allotment would now be 30 days instead of 65 earlier. Electricity connection will be made available within 15 to 30 days instead of 60 days earlier. Chief Secretary AP Padhi has directed all the concerned departments to ensure physical delivery of services at ground level within the specified time limit without fail.

Padhi gave this direction while presiding over an inter-departmental orientation programme on e-biz, officials said.
