NEW DELHI: The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion along with the World Bank has released a list of 405 business process reforms on which the states will be ranked on ease of doing business this year. The states will have to implement these reforms by October 31. The government will then gather feedback from users to assess the action taken on the ground.
The reforms have been classified into 11 broad areas including labour regulation, contract enforcement, registering property, inspection enablers, single-window system, land availability and allotment, and construction permit. The states will also have to make processes easier for environmental registration, obtaining utility permits for water and electricity, paying taxes and access to information and transparency.
