These meetings have witnessed active participation from the stakeholders. DPIIT and Invest India have been proactively holding regular reviews with the Ministries, States and Industry associations in the process of setting up the NSWS to ensure an inclusive approach for building this national portal. Over 150 participants from States and Ministries have participated in the review meetings held by Special Secretary, DPIIT and held discussions on the way forward for NSWS.

During the interactions with stakeholder Ministries and States and UTs, the strong growth trajectory of the country was highlighted, and how a ‘whole of Govt’ approach’ is critical to realize our ambitions and targets. In this context, the NSWS initiative is the perfect example of the ‘whole of Govt’ approach with different Ministries, Deptt of Govt of India and the States and UTs coming together to facilitate investor related clearances on a single portal, with transparency and accountability, and enhancing ease of doing business.
