The DICs will have modern IT enabled infrastructure to help entrepreneurs access various services online
The Indian state of Tamil Nadu is planning to provide modern information technology (IT) enabled communication facilities to district industries centres (DICs) in all the 32 districts, as part of its move to develop industries in the state.
The state will also take up appropriate civil works in various district headquarters to revamp the DICs, which are expected to play a pro-active role for the benefit of the entrepreneurs.
The state-owned Small Industries Development Corporation (SIDCO), a promoter of Small Scale Industries in the state, has initiative efforts to allow entrepreneurs file their applications for allotment of plots online.
The state government is working with National Informatics Centre (NIC) to develop a software that will enable entrepreneurs submit their applications seeking allotment of plots online, according to an official.
Currently, users can only download application forms for allotting lands from SIDCO’s website
