About National Single Window System (NSWS):
India’s National Single Window System for Business Approvals
The National Single Window System (NSWS) is a digital platform for guidance of investors to identify and to apply for approvals as per their business requirements. The Know Your Approvals (KYA) module supports information across 32 Central Departments and 17 States.

Currently, the portal hosts applications for approvals from 21 Central Departments and 14 State Governments.
The platform is built to serve as an advisory tool to identify approvals based on user input and is to be used for guidance purpose only. We are working to onboard more approvals and update relevant information on a periodic basis.
