New Delhi, March 22, 2017

The government is planning to set up a single window online system for providing all information and services related to international trade.

The plan is to provide importers and exporters the facility to submit applications and clearance documents as well as obtaining approvals and benefits electronically at a single point only in a digital mode.

In case some permissions are required from other regulatory agencies, they would be obtained online without traders having to approach them.

The move is aimed at promoting ease of doing business and improving India’s ranking. It will eliminate multiple interface with government agencies, dwell time, track goods/delivery from door to door and the cost of doing business, the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) said while floating a request for proposal.
