Who: Self-certifying scheme for industries to set up units
Where: Odisha
What: To be introduced
When: 17 January 2016

Odisha government on 17 January 2016 decided to introduce a self-certifying scheme for non-hazardous industries.

This scheme will ease the process of doing business in the state by shortening the inspection process at the initial levels required for non-hazardous industries to set up units.

The decision in regard to the scheme was taken at a high-level meeting in Bhubaneswar, presided over by Chief Secretary Aditya Prasad Padhi.

The Chief Secretary suggested the Labour and ESI Department to expedite the process for notifying the self-certification scheme. The department was also asked to simplify the compliance process to Labour and Factories Act as a step for facilitating setting up of more industrial units and creation of more jobs.
