Nripendra Mishra is credited to have introduced single window scheme to clear industrial and investment plans in Uttar Pradesh, thus infusing transparency and efficiency into the system.

Mishra also convenes the India International Centre’s “Saturday Lunch Club”, which supposedly brings together highbrows and sages to tell the government what it should and should not do.
