The CM directed the additional chief secretaries/principal secretaries of the related departments to strengthen the online services of their respective departments and ensure the speedy issuance of no-objection certificates (NOCs), and the fee payment system for this should be linked to the 'Nivesh Mitra' portal. For immediate issuance of NOCs, all the system should be in place by September 30, the CM instructed.
He further directed to expedite the implementation of reforms in the geology and mining department and asked to make services online by September 20. The chief minister said the urban development department should prepare an action plan for providing online service to the investors.
