The Government of India is considering to significantly cut down the number of approvals required for eateries and kirana shops. It has undertaken several reform measures to cut down the number of approvals required to set up a business.

A representation has been received from National Restaurant Association of India (NRAI) regarding introduction of a single window clearance system for opening/running a restaurant.

The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT), through the State Reforms Action Plan, encourages states and Union Territories (UTs) to implement an online application system to fast-track granting of approval and renewal under the Shops and Establishment Act of the respective states, which includes the restaurant industry as well.

The system should have the following features:

Online submission of application without the need to submit physical copy of application
Eliminate physical touchpoint for document submission
Allow option of online payment of application fee
Allow applicant to track status of application online.
Ensure that applicant can download the final certificate online.

Various approvals/clearances/licences, at the Centre as well as at the state level, are required for setting up of eateries and kirana shops, depending on the nature of shop.

This information was given by commerce and industry minister Piyush Goyal, in a written reply in the Lok Sabha recently.
