This will be accessible via a mobile app or on one site. “The thought is to make it easy for retailers to access data,” a government spokesperson told to the media in an interview.

The official claimed that the effort will be able to make rules traversable and data readily accessible to vendors. The difficulty in discovering the data is also viewed to be hampering effortlessness of performing business.

This program has also permitted for risk-based assessment at companies. India has accepted the National Action Plan for Trade Facilitation, which plans to launch measures to make it simpler to trade.
