NOIDA/GREATER NOIDA: The three development authorities of Gautam Budh Nagar have been told to set up a team of officials and send them to various states to study how they make life easier for investors.
In a letter to the CEOs of Noida, Greater Noida and Yeida on Wednesday, UP chief secretary Alok Ranjan has directed them to constitute a team of officials and send them to different states including Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh Maharashtra, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh to study the business procedures adopted by them.
According to the letter, which clearly shows the state is keen on cutting down red tape and simplifying compliance procedures for investors, Ranjan said the central government had recommended that a simpler mechanism be put into place to replace the myriad permissions needed to start an enterprise.
The forward-looking measures have to include GIS-based land bank, clear land allotment procedures, building plan approval through AutoCAD, easy access to zonal plans, online system for approval of building plans, digitization of land records, timelines and online process for water and sewage connections, etc. All these simplified procedures will also have to be uploaded on respective websites by October 31. An action taken plan and compliance of directions will be discussed in a meeting scheduled with Ranjan on October 12, officials said.
