Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion and World Bank has released the list of states on the basis of ease of doing business. Andhra Pradesh, Telangana top the ease of doing business list prepared by DIPP and World Bank. Gujarat, Chattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh, all three BJP ruled states rank next in the list.
The results are based on an online dashboard created by the DIPP that tracks implementation in real time. The dashboard updates rankings every time a response by a state is validated by the DIPP.
Last week, the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business Index revealed that India has managed to move up by only one rank in the Doing Business Report 2017.
India’s position on five out of 10 parameters also went down, compared to the previous year’s rankings. The government said the ranking failed to take into account the various reform initiatives undertaken by it.
