The Conference is aimed at identifying regulatory barriers; suggest possible reforms to assist the efforts of Government of Telangana in ease of doing business in the state. The Conference will draw leading businessmen, entrepreneurs, start-ups, venture capitalists and angels from the state including team from CPPR and TECCI.

The details of the program are as follows:

Topic Ease of Doing Business- Way Forward
Specific Focus on Easing Business Barriers related to entry, conduct and exit of the Businesses and entrepreneurs
Date 25th, February, 2016
Event 10.00 am - 4:00 pm (Registration Begins at 9:30 am)
Venue Dr MCR HRD Institute, Jubilee Hills, Hyderabad


Economic Development is a key imperative for any State to sustain GDP growth. Proactive and business-oriented policies and functional administrative procedures pursued by the State Government largely encourage investors to set up businesses. This in turn fosters overall development of the State. It is heartening to see the efforts taken up by the Government of Telengana to boost its economy through the great efforts on Ease of doing business in the state including Single Window Clearance, Land Bank, Randomised Inspector allocations etc. Given the larger mandate and efforts taken up by the government, it is appropriate to channelize and streamline the same towards the larger objective- developing a favourable business ecosystem in the state.

It is in this light that Centre for Public Policy Research, one of the leading think tanks based in Kochi, Kerala is proposing to host a one day Conference on Ease of Doing Business. Having had the experience of working with various state governments, especially in Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Karnataka; it is in the larger interest of CPPR to help and assist the state towards understanding the regulatory barriers and effectuating reforms. This Conference will host roundtable discussions with the government representatives and industries to identify the key areas where reforms need to be initiated and propose possible ways to improve the business climate in the state. We therefore believe that the current initiative will align with the interest of the government and businesses or investors who have shown tremendous interest to 'make and work for Telangana's cause'.


The main objective of the Conference is to get a feel of the challenges and bottlenecks that corporates are facing while starting, operating and exiting of businesses in addition to throwing light on the ways in which the regulatory barriers could be overcome. The issues thus captured will be complied in the form of a memorandum and submitted to the State government for initiating correctives measures. CPPR has been closely working with various States in ease of doing business and aims to assist the efforts of Central Government especially Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) in this regard. CPPR is hosting the first South Indian Conclave on Ease of Doing Business on 11-12th March at Kochi, Kerala bring key people from the states to brainstorm on ease of doing reforms.

Discussion Points

- Single Window Clearance, Licenses and Permit

- Regulatory Clearances for Industries in Land

We request the entrepreneurs and industrialists of Micro, Small, Medium and Major Industries to submit the prescribed form duly filled in and signed to TECCI immediately for onward submission to the Commissioner of Industries. The prescribed Form is attached.

According to a data provided by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, there are about 5000 dormant companies in Telangana State which is a matter of serious concern. Due to the lack of cooperation from the earlier Government in the combined state, these companies did not perform and prosper well and consequently attained the dormant status. The Members are aware that the dormant status will attract the following provisions among other restrictions.

Under Companies Act 1956, disqualification was applicable only on the Directors of the Public Companies, now the word ‘public company’ is being replaced by ‘company. By virtue of this amendment it becomes applicable to all the companies both in the Public and Private sectors.

→ Proviso to Rule 8 of the Companies (Miscellaneous) Rules, 2014 says that a dormant company cannot remain as a dormant company for more than five (5) consecutive financial years. If it remains so, then the Registrar of Companies shall commence the process of striking off the name of the company from the Records.

→ Earlier Disqualification provided under section 274(1)(g) was substituted by section 164(2) which affects earlier section as follows.

The Members are well aware that In the process of making a GOLDEN TELANGANA, the state Government has introduced a first of its kind industrial policy called Telangana State Industrial Project Approval and Self Certification System (TS-IPASS) Act, 2014. Which was duly passed in the state Assembly.

Under these circumstances, TECCI has drawn up a program to approach the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Government of India, New Delhi to consider the waiver of penalties imposed on late filings the way this facility was kept in place recently.

The Members and other viewers are therefore advised to approach the help desk at TECCI in case they are interested in availing this facility.

Depending on the response, we will appropriately approach and request the Ministry for extending the time limit and reducing the penalty to a greater extent compared to the last waiver as mentioned in Company Law Settlement Scheme This will greatly pave the way for entrepreneurs and industrialists in bringing their wagons back on the rails.

Notification - 1
