Commerce Ministry, Infosys jointly launch eBiz portal

The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce and Industry, has announced the launch of eBiz – India’s first Government-to-Business (G2B) portal, which has been developed by Infosys in a public-private partnership model. The eBiz portal, which aims at transforming and developing a conducive business environment in India, was launched by Union Minister of Commerce, Industry and Textiles Anand Sharma at the CII Partnership Summit in Agra.

The eBiz platform will provide a one-stop shop for convenient and efficient online G2B services for the investor and business communities in India, reducing delays and complexity in obtaining information and services. It will serve as a gateway to obtain services relating to planning, starting and operating businesses in India, including licenses, approvals, clearances, obtaining no objection certificates, permits and filing returns.

Infosys has launched the first phase of the project, which will provide investors an interactive tool to assess license and permit requirements to set up and operate a business in India.

Speaking on the occasion, Anand Sharma said, “We are firmly committed to wide-ranging initiatives aimed at fostering the business environment in the country in a holistic manner. Our approach includes leveraging technology to bring transparency, improve efficiency and promote convenience. eBiz is an important step in this direction and we are pleased to work in partnership with Infosys on this project, which we hope will become a benchmark for successful public private partnerships in the country.”

V  Balakrishnan, Member of the Board and Head - India Business Unit, Infosys added here, “The eBiz portal is a programme of national importance and will provide better governance, transparency and ease of use for businesses in India. We are confident that our prior experience of working with the Income Tax Department and our strong consulting and systems integration capabilities will enable us to continue executing the future phases of this project successfully.”

As part of the 10-year programme, Infosys will roll out services in a phased manner. In the first year of the three-year long pilot, 29 services will be unveiled in the five states of Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. Further, over the course of the second and third years, an additional 21 services will be launched and five additional states will be brought under the scope of this project. From the fourth year onwards, the project will see more than 200 services rolled out across the country.

eBiz adheres to global e-governance standards under the National e-Governance Plan of the Government of India. It is an Integrated Mission Mode Project that aims at providing Central Government, State Government and local administration related services.
