LICENCE RAJ/ PERMIT RAJ
TYPES OF LICENCE
LICENCE RAJ
• Licence Raj refers to regulations and accompanying
bureaucracy that were required to set up and run Indian
Businesses in India Between 1951 and 1991. The Government
resorted to licencing system so that it can maintain control
over industries as per the Industries Development and
Regulation Act, 1951.
• License refers to a written permission granted by government
to a firm which mentions what product can be manufactured
by the firm.
CONDITIONS
• The existing industrial units (prior enactment of IDR act 1951) needed
to obtain registration under the act.
• For new industrial units to be set up in category of licenced industries.
If the industry is not covered under compulsory licensing but the
investment.
• If any article is reserved for small scale industries and a firm wanted to
manufacture these items, it needed a license.
• If a firm wants to increase its production capacity beyond 25%, it
needed to obtain prior approval.
BAJAJ CHETAK
OBJECTIVES
• To regulate the industrial sector, particularly private sector in desired direction
as per objectives of the five year plans. To check the concentration of
ownership of industries in few hands.
• To encourage the new entrepreneurs to set up industries and small scale
industries.
• They needed to deal with various government departments and officers; and
spent more time in Delhi than their factories.
• Needed to deal with the officials and spent more time in Delhi than their
factories.
• Objective was to check the concentration of power in few hands instead they
start issuing license to big houses.
• There was an excessive control as one needed to obtain licences for setting up
new unit, starting production of new product, substantial expansion.
REFORMS
• Monopolies commission. On the basis of recommendation of
this committee, a monopolies Inquiry commission was
established headed by Justice KC Dasgupta.
• Hazari committee. The process for review of the licensing
system began with Hazari committee in 1967 headed by Dr.
R K Hazari. This committee threw light on the failure.
• Dutt committee. 1967 “Industrial Licensing Policy Inquiry
Committee” was set up under the chairmanship of Mr.
Subimal Dutt. due to the license raj, a very strong nexus had
developed between the Industrial houses, politicians and
bureaucrats. (Core, Non-core and Reserve)
MRTPACT
• MONOPOLISTIC AND RESTRICTIVE TRADE
PRACTICES on the basis of recommendation of Dutt
Committee, MRTP Act was enacted in 1969 to ensure
that concentration of economic power is not in hands of
few rich
• This act is not in force now as it was replaced in 2009
and was replaced by competition Act 2002 with effect
from September 1, 2009. it established MRTP
commission; which is now replaced nby Competition
Commission of India.
THE END
• The backdrop of Dutt committee and MRTP Act; the
government launched its new Industrial License Policy
in 1970 whereby the industrial were re-classified into
four groups viz. Core Sector, Middle Sector, Non-core
Heavy Investment Sector and delicensed sector.
• Thus, the role of the large business house was confined
to the core, heavy and export oriented sectors. The
small industries were deregulated and in 1991 LPG was
also introduced which ultimately brought end to this
