The Uttar Pradesh government on 13 May 2013 announced its decision to frame an exclusive law to ensure time-bound issuance of clearances to industries. The mandate of the proposed Uttar Pradesh Industrial Services Guarantee Act includes provisions for delivering notified services within stipulated time limits and fixing accountability of licensing authorities for the delay. The imposition of penalty on erring officers has also been proposed.
In the first phase, 14 clearances from seven departments - industries, electrical safety, fire safety, power, pollution control, labour and factories - will be included under the proposed act.
