Due process and transparency must be strengthened, in all appropriate quarters where decisions are taken on licensing, subsidy, power-purchase-agreements, operational equipment procurements and metering etc. In similar vein, efforts must be made to improve on security of lives and property and by so doing, encourage a business-friendly atmosphere nationwide.
