This research project aims to foster ease of doing business for industries within Rajasthan by reducing the regulatory compliance burden under the state laws. The state of Rajasthan has been ranked eighth within India, according to the State-wise Ease of Doing Business Rank, 2020 by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade [(DPIIT) formerly known as DIPP], Government of India.
Over the past few years, the Government of Rajasthan has been at the forefront of industrial reforms to facilitate an ecosystem hospitable for trade, commerce and industry. While the State Government has attempted to aggregate all clearances upon the Advanced Single Window Clearance Portal (ASWCP), what remains to be analysed is the rationale behind these compliances.
The study in this regard intends to identify and analyse the rationale and relevance of compliances under state laws using Regulatory Guillotine Framework, and recommend amending or abolishing sub-optimal clearances, to substantially reduce the compliance burden on industry stakeholders, by as much as 50-60 percent.
The study also aims to bring a coherent understanding of the role of government agencies in reducing compliance burden in the state, along with potential benefits of such reduction to the stakeholders, in terms of indicators like costs, investment opportunities, etc.
