This question is asking whether the IPI has an organization which is explicitly expected to carry out investment promotion. Provide details of the Act / notification / government or similar, under which the IPI mandate is defined. If this mandate stipulates for an actual Investment Promotion Agency, this is scored as ‘yes’. If alongside its other activities, your location’s Department of Industries, Industrial Development Corporation or Department of MSME, have a specific investment promotion function mandate, this would also be a ‘yes’.
It is important the definition of what constitutes investment promotion is clearly understood: it can be defined as image building and marketing the location, information, networking and facilitation services for investors, aftercare and policy advocacy. It does not mean issuing investor licensors, incentives administration, permitting, land allocation, property rentals, etc. It should also not simply mean a one stop shop / single window, which while having a facilitation role, does not carry out any of the other activities noted above.
