Andhra 1

Though the reform evidence score of Andhra Pradesh (99.73%) was lower than Telangana and Jharkhand, which scored a ideal 100%, its user feedback score at 86.5% was the highest among all states, helping it top the Business Reform Action Plan ranking conducted by the department of industrial policy and promotion (DIPP). As per the charts, AP took away first place with a final score of 98.42% while Telangana took the second position with a score of 98.33%.

The other states that make up the top 10 are Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Karnataka and Rajasthan.

The commerce and industry ministry released the ranking on Tuesday. "A large number of states have made significant progress in reforms suggested in BRAP 2017", a statement issued by DIPP said.

"The innovative partnership between the Central and state governments in a spirit of cooperative and competitive federalism to facilitate investments across the country is yielding notable results", CII President Rakesh Bharti Mittal said.

The parameters include areas such as construction permit, labour regulation, environmental registration, access to information, land availability, and single window system.

Manipur, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Lakshadweep and Meghalaya took the bottom ranks.

DIPP in collaboration with the World Bank conducts an annual reform exercise for all States/UTs under the BRAP.

The list categorised India's 34 states and UTs into 4 categories - "Top achievers", with a score of over 95% (9 states), "achievers" with a score between 90-95% (6 states), "fast movers" which had scored between 80-90% (3 states), and those with a score below 80% in the "aspirers" category (18 states and UTs). Number of reform actions implemented under BRAP 2017 increased to 7,758 from 2,532 in 2015.
