DIPP plans to release the States’ ranking for the current year in January 2018.
The Centre is all set for its first public perception survey to evaluate reforms related to ease of doing business claimed by States on the basis of which they would be ranked.
The Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP) expects to release the States’ ranking in January next year.
“All States have time till Tuesday to submit their inputs on steps taken to improve ease of doing business in their jurisdiction. The Centre will then start its first public perception survey on what businesses feel about the reforms that governments claim to have carried out and rank States accordingly,” BusinessLine quoted a government official as saying.
Andhra Pradesh and Telengana jointly topped the 2016 all-India State/Union Territory-wise ease of doing business rankings on the basis of a 340-point business reform action plan and their implementation by the states.
The new process will reflect the changes taking place at the ground level, the official added.
