NEW DELHI: The Commerce and Industry Ministry is likely to release the ranking of States in terms of Ease of Doing Business by January, a senior official said.

Andhra Pradesh and Telangana jointly topped the 2016 all-India State/Union Territory-wise Ease of Doing Business rankings. The move is aimed at triggering competition among states to attract investments and improve business climate.

“We are trying to release the ranking by January or February,” the Ministry official said.

State Governments are taking several steps such as setting up of single window system for approvals to improve Ease of Doing Business, the official added.

Last years’ rankings were based on a 340-point business reform action plan and their implementation by the States.
