Single Window Clearance

The Government of Kerala has introduced the Single Window Clearance System in the State, with the intention of expediting the issue of various clearances for new Industrial Projects, effective from 1st June 2000. A final clearance for all new projects, either approval or rejection, is to be given within a specific period from the date of submission of application, as per the system. This has been made a statutory requirement under the Kerala State Single Window Clearance Boards and Industrial Township Area Development Act 1999.

A State Level Board for aiding medium and large-scale industries has been constituted in this regard, headed by the Chief Secretary, which shall issue clearances within a timeframe of 45 days. Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation has been designated as the Single Contact Point and the Convenor of the State Board. The Board has statutory powers to enforce its decisions.

In a similar manner, District Level Boards have been constituted for clearing small scale industrial undertakings, with the District Collector as the Chairman and General Manager, District Industries Centre as the Convenor; the stipulated time frame being 60 days.

Industrial Area Boards have also been set up in the various industrial areas of the state for the clearance of projects being set up in these areas. An officer not below the rank of District Collector is the Chairman in each Board, with the Designated Authority of the Industrial Area as Convenor, to issue clearances within a period of 30 days

A composite application form has also been formulated, which the entrepreneur need submit only at the designated contact points. With the introduction of the Single Window Clearance System, setting up of Industrial projects in the State is expected to become a hassle free operation.
