West Bengal exempts Shops and Commercial Establishments from payment of Fees for Renewal of Licences

Jan 07, 2019 | by Avantis RegTech Legal Research Team

Consequent to the introduction of online registration of shops and establishments under the West Bengal Shops and Establishments Act, 1963 and Rules framed thereunder, an extensive process re-engineering as well as e-Governance solutions had been undertaken to reduce regulatory burden on users.

The Government of West Bengal, in consultation with the Finance Department, has decided that the regulatory burden on the users and the administrative burden should be further reduced by a process of "deemed renewal" of licences issued under the Act after the expiry of the license period.

In view of the above, the Governor of West Bengal has dispensed with the provision of fees for renewal of licences of shops and establishments under the Act with immediate effect.
