11 Government Services Launched on eBiz Portal
Feb 23, 2015

The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce & Industry announced the launch of 11 Central Government Services on eBiz portal. These services are required for starting a business in the country—4 services from Ministry of Corporate Affairs, 2 services of Central Board of Direct Taxes, 2 services of Reserve Bank of India and 1 service each from Directorate General of Foreign Trade, Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation and Petroleum & Explosives Safety Organisation.  

Salient Features :

  • A business-user today avails these services either from the portal of respective Ministry/Department or by physical submission of forms. 

  • With the integration of these services on eBiz portal, one can avail all these services 24x7 online end-to-end, like, online submission of forms, attachments, payments, tracking of status and also obtain the license/permit.  

  • Through eBiz portal, a business-user can fill the eForms online/offline, upload the attachments.

  • Make payment online and submit the forms for processing of the department. 

  • Business-user will be provided with copy of challan, which can be saved or printed.

  • Acknowledgement of submission and tracking of status of the form besides receiving SMS alerts on important notifications. 

  • The certificate/clearance can be downloaded from eBiz. 

  • eBiz—India’s Government-to-Business (G2B) portal  was conceptualized with support from National Institute of Smart Government (NISG) as the consulting partner and developed by Infosys Ltd., Bangalore in a Public Private Partnership (PPP) Model for a period of 10 years. 

  • The first three years of the term would be the pilot phase, while the remaining seven years will be the expansion phase. 

  • During the pilot phase, 50 (26 central+24 state) services are being implemented across ten pilot states—Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Punjab, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal.

  • It is envisaged that during the next few years, more than 200 services related to investors and businesses will be rolled-out across the country.
