Bhubaneswar: As many as 3615 industrial units have come on board Odisha’s Single-Window Investor Facilitation and Tracking portal – GO SWIFT, only a month after its launch.
“With the launch of the portal, Odisha has made remarkable development from a pre-dominantly paper-based system to an end-to-end online system for all major clearances and support sought by industrial units,” Industries Minister Niranjan Pujari said.
“The portal has received an overwhelming response and 3,615 industrial units have come into the fold of GO SWIFT within just 30 days of its launch,” Pujari said.
“As per ASSOCHAM, we have the highest implementation rate of industrial projects amongst all states. Odisha is today the most preferred investment destination in the country,” Pujari claimed.
This apart, Pujari also said Odisha will be introducing more progressive reforms next year, as well as intensify investor reach-out activities within the country and outside.
To provide a seamless investment ecosystem for better business, Odisha government launched the GO SWIFT platform on November 16.
Using GO SWIFT, new industrial units can obtain necessary information regarding investible projects, applicable incentives and clearances within 7 days of application.
The units can also select suitable industrial land on a Geographic Information System (GIS)-based platform, ‘GO PLUS’.
GO SWIFT facilitates online approval from the Single Window Authority and Land allotment from IDCO through this one-stop solution.
This year Odisha has received 76 investment proposals under Make In Odisha programme.
Earlier on Wednesday, Chief Secretary AP Padhi had informed that the Odisha government has decided to organise investor reach-out activities at all major metropolitan cities, including Delhi, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Mumbai to highlight business opportunities in the state and drum up support for the second edition of the Make-In-Odisha Conclave next year.
