"Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) in its efforts to improve business climate in states, has started preparing the next set of business reforms for States to implement," the Ministry said in a statement today. The states will be implementing business reforms of this new framework for next year's assessment of implementation of business reforms, it said. In this regard, a workshop was organized with state government and Union Territory officials today, to brainstorm on ideas leading to the framework.
Nearly 20 states/UTs representatives participated and provided suggestions to the DIPP in the meeting. "Many states recommended a feedback mechanism from beneficiaries, which should be made an integral part of the assessment framework," it said.
