New Delhi . India has been ranked 77th in the list of World Bank’s Easy Offing Business 2018-19 list. India’s ranking has improved by 23 points. India’s 100th rank was in the list of 2017-18. India has been in the top-10 reforming countries for the second consecutive year in terms of economy. At the same time, India is at the forefront of Isis of Doing Business in South Asian countries. The World Bank issues this report every year.

The rankings give a measure of how friendly the regulatory environment of a country is for doing business. In its annual ‘Doing Business’ 2019 report, World Bank said India improved on six of the 10 parameters relating to starting and doing business in a country. New Zeland has held on to the top spot, while Somalia is the worst place to begin a business.

These parameters include ease of starting a business, construction permits, getting electricity, getting credit, paying taxes, trade across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency. China is one of this year’s top 10 improvers, advancing more than 30 spots to 46th place in the global rankings.

He added: “With all uniform construction bye-laws, from 184 in 2014 ranking we have jumped up by 129 points to 52. This is the largest single jump. It was a big corruption issue. But there has been a record improvement in ranking.”

Union minister Suresh Prabhu tweeted: “India has done it again! Under the able leadership of Hon’ble PM Shri @narendramodi ji, India jumped the #EaseofDoingBusinessRankings by 23 this year to be ranked at 77. India has moved up 53 ranks in the last two years, the highest improvement in 2 years by any large country since 2011 reflecting our Govt’s commitment to implement progressive reforms.”

GST’s biggest reason for improving ranking

The World Bank said in its report that the biggest change has come through GST. GST was not included in last year’s ranking. India’s ranking has improved with GST as well as through insolvency and banking codes.
GST has made it easy to start the business because it has integrated many application forms to bring together a single general insurance form. The process of registration has accelerated.
Taxation in India has not only been easy, but corporate income tax rates have also come down.
It has been said in the report that India has set an agenda of the Reform by continuously training people of customs and private sector.
India has made custom clearance committee recommendations. Because of this, the business has become easy on the international level.

India’s ranking improved with good performance in these six cases.

The latest jump comes in an election year, as the government is under opposition attack for what it calls the “failure” of PM Modi’s “Make in India” initiative. Congress chief Rahul Gandhi has consistently attacked the government, saying instead of Make in India, “Everything is made in China”.

In its annual ‘Doing Business’ 2019 report, the World Bank said India has improved on six of the 10 parameters on starting and doing business in a country. The checklist includes ease of starting a business, construction permits, getting electricity, getting credit, paying taxes, trade across borders, enforcing contracts and resolving insolvency, reported news agency Press Trust of India.
