Gujarat Loses its Top Spot to AP and Telangana
Nov 1, 2016

In a surprising bit of news, the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have topped the 'Ease of Doing Business Reforms Ranking 2015-16.' This annual ranking is conducted by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) and the World Bank. Gujarat has lost its top spot.

As reported in Livemint, the government has expressed satisfaction with the cooperation it has received from various state governments. Last year, only seven states implemented more than 50% of the reforms proposed. This year, 17 have done so. Last year, not a single state implemented more than 75% of reforms, this year, 16 have done so.

The ranking was based on six key reform areas: single-window systems, tax reforms, construction permits, environment and labour reforms, inspection reforms, and commercial disputes and paper-less courts. Clearly, India's states are rising to the challenge.

In today's premium edition (subscription required) of The 5 Minute WrapUp, Rahul Shah discusses India's performance in the World Bank's 'Doing Business rankings. India's rank has improved by only one from 131 to 130 this year. But what does it mean exactly?
