In its bid to address the problems related to delay in approvals, the government will soon provide a single-window clearance for urban development projects, said Union minister M Venkaiah Naidu.

"By November 30, we will be bringing out a notification about easy approvals...like a single-window clearance is in the offing by November end," the Urban Development minister said at the 'National Strategy Day on India' organised by the World Economic Forum and industry body CII.

Once that framework is operational the delays in approvals will be addressed, Naidu said.

India is ranked a dismal 183 out of 189 countries on the World Bank's ease of doing business for 2016 on the parameter of 'dealing with construction permits', which underscores the urgency of reforms in this respect, stated a news report.

"The government is serious about improving the ease of doing business... Things will improve," Naidu said.
