BENGALURU:  In the ease of doing business ranking of states and Union Territories released by the World Bank and the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Karnataka managed to score 98.64% for 372 parameters in which the state had to show documentary evidence of reform. However, it scored much less in the feedback given by businesses and companies with a score of 77.66% which put it behind states like Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh. This difference in scores probably brought the final combined score down.

Transparency was the next major reform with a score of 54 on 100 while single window clearance remained the most desired reform with a score of just 10 on 100. The state has yet to integrate 2 years data at sub-registrar offices, put in pace a system for online applications, payment, tracking and monitoring for business related applications as well as a system which reduces documents required for obtaining electricity connections to only two documents.

From the 13th spot in 2016, Karnataka has improved its ranking significantly to become the 8th most business friendly state in the ease of doing business ranking. Andhra Pradesh tops the list of states followed by Telangana and Haryana. Jharkhand, Gujarat, Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh are next in the list.
