In view of Ease of Doing Business (“EODB”), the Government of Karnataka has gone ahead and simplified the renewal procedures for certificates / registrations / licenses for establishments by introducing an auto-renewal system with online payment of fees under certain Acts.
The auto-renewal system is in force and will be applicable for the following Acts –
1. Registration under the Karnataka Shops and Commercial Establishments Act, 1961;
2. License under the Contract labour (Regulation and Abolition) Act, 1970;
3. License under the Inter-State Migrant Workmen (Regulation of Employment and Conditions of Service) Act, 1979;
4. License under the Factories Act, 1948.
The auto-renewal system is being introduced to simplify the existing rules and to make the whole process transparent.
Now, the applicant / businesses will not need to file any separate application. The licenses / registrations and certificates will be renewed by paying the fees online. The applicant can download the digitally signed approval certificate through Department’s portal.
