A report titled “Assessment of State Implementation of Business Reforms” was released on 14 September, 2015. The report captures the findings of an assessment of reform implementation by states, led by DIPP, Ministry of Commerce and Industry, Government of India (GoI) with support from World Bank group and KPMG. This assessment has been conducted to take stock of reforms implemented by states from January to June, 2015 based on a 98-point (agreed between DIPP and state/UTs) action plan for business reforms and rank them on the basis of reforms implemented.

The assessment reveals that states are at different levels of implementation on the 98-point action plan. The implementation status of each state has been converted to a percentage, and on the basis of this the state rankings have been calculated.

A 340-point action plan for improving the regulatory framework for business as part of simplifying doing-business in the country was shared by DIPP with all states/UTs for implementation in 2016. In this regard, an online portal to track implementation of reforms on a real-time basis has been launched on 8 April, 2016.
