As part of improving the EoDB scenario in the state, the Government decided to make the licensing regime online and engaged KSIDC as the nodal agency. Accordingly, an online platform – Kerala Single Window Interface for Fast and Transparent clearance (K-SWIFT) was developed in the year 2019. K-SWIFT aims at bringing together various departments/ agencies for expediting approvals within the mandated timelines. Currently, 21 departments/ agencies offering over 85 services are integrated to K-SWIFT.
The portal has won several accolades including e-Governance Award 2019 from Computer Society of India, the Chief Minister’s Award for Innovations in Public Service Delivery category in 2022.
Upon enactment of the Kerala Micro Small and Medium Enterprises Facilitation Act, 2019, MSME clearances (Acknowledgment Certificates) are issued to MSMEs not falling under Red category, via K-SWIFT from 2020.
