Government Calls for Reducing Licensing for Eateries and Kirana Stores

In another win for our on-going work to promote the ease of doing business in India, the government is planning to significantly cut down the number of approvals required for kirana stores and eateries which will help make procedures simpler for aspiring entrepreneurs. CCS has been working to dismantle regulatory barriers that directly impact the ease of opening and running businesses, the removal of judicial bottlenecks to a conducive business environment, and towards fostering inclusive markets and improving livelihoods for bottom-of-pyramid communities. In 2018, we published the Doing Business in Delhi Report that studied the regulatory barriers to operate restaurants, meat shops and e-waste recycling plants in Delhi, evaluating the business reforms conducted between 2016 to 2018. We also hosted a roundtable bringing together policy experts and influencers to advocate for a reduction in licensing requirements and easing the opening of small and medium businesses in Delhi.
