The services, launched by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce & Industry, are required for starting a business in the country. Ministry of Corporate Affairs, two services of Central Board of Direct Taxes, two services of Reserve Bank of India and one service each from Directorate General of Foreign Trade, Employees’ Provident Fund Organisation and Petroleum & Explosives Safety Organisation.
At present, businesses avail these services either from the portal of respective Ministry/Department or by physical submission of forms. With the integration of these services on eBiz portal, one can avail all these services 24/7 online end-to-end i.e., online submission of forms, attachments, payments, tracking of status and also obtain the license/permit from eBiz portal.
The eBiz platform enables a transformational shift in the Governments’ service delivery approach from being department-centric to customer-centric as a single window portal.
One of the salient features of eBiz is its payment gateway solution. With integration of PSU banks, government fees are transferred on ‘T+1’ basis. For eBiz transactions, an electronic PAO system (ePAO) has been set up in DIPP which will make booking and reconciliation of all Central Government fees received through eBiz portal.
The Comptroller General of Accounts has given approval to establish the electronic system of collection, apportionment and remittance of fees collected under the eBiz portal. It is for the first time in the country that collection of fees through credit and debit cards for different services have been permitted making it very convenient for business to deposit fees.
