Making a strong pitch for investments in various sectors, the Karnataka Government has initiated measures to provide single window clearances within a specific timeframe to bring transparency and accountability in the administration.

The “Right to Services Act” put in place recently, covers 151 services, assuring investors timely clearances to their ventures. “It is mandatory for officials to follow the timelines, lest they will be penalised for the delays,” Karnataka Infrastructure Development department secretary Rajkumar Khatri said.

Mr. Khatri was part of an official delegation led by Karnataka Minister for Large and Medium Industries Murugesh R. Nirani that was in the city on Tuesday. The delegation was here as part of a road show “advantage Karnataka” organised ahead of the second edition of the Global Investors Meet 2012.
