India has been consistently introducing a slew of reform measures in a wide range of indicators, including Starting a Business, Trading across Borders, Resolving Insolvency, Paying Taxes, Simplification of labour compliances, among others. As a result, the country’s global ranking in the World Bank’s Doing Business Report has witnessed a sharp upward trend in recent years, improving from the 142nd position in 2015 to the 63rd position in 2020.
