The Cen­tre will soon an­nounce a mech­a­nism that will fa­cil­i­tate online sub­mis­sion and pro­cess­ing of ap­pli­ca­tions for set­ting up ICD, CFS and Air Freight Sta­tions (AFS). The pro­posed re­form – with a view to boost In­dia's for­eign trade – comes at a time when de­mands for set­ting up more ICDS, CFSS and AFSS in In­dia have risen. The In­ter-min­is­te­rial Com­mit­tee (IMC), a sin­gle win­dow clear­ance mech­a­nism for ap­ply­ing for CFS/ICD is con­sid­ered cum­ber­some and in­volves sub­mis­sion of sev­eral doc­u­ments.

The Web-based mech­a­nism, be­ing de­vel­oped by the gov­ern­ment-owned Na­tional In­for­mat­ics Cen­tre Ser­vices Inc., is aimed at en­abling the de­vel­oper to sub­mit ap­pli­ca­tions online and track their sta­tus on a real-time ba­sis.
