The Goods and Services Tax (GST) came into effect across India from 01 July 2017. GST has turned all 36 states and union territories of India into one common market. By curbing and cascading taxes, GST has also reduced the cost of local production. The GST rate on more than 200 products has been reduced from 28% to 18%. GST is expected to increase overall efficiency and productivity, thereby attracting more foreign direct investment (FDI).1 Taxpaying is much easier in India because of factors like the introduction of GST and digitisation of processes. A fact that is captured in the World Bank Doing Business Report 2018 declares that India’s ranking on the ‘Paying Taxes’ indicator has improved by 53 places.2 The Government has also formed a Goods & Services Tax Council, for making recommendations to the Union and State Government on issues related to Goods and Service Tax. The regular meetings and proactive remedial actions of the council have ensured effective implementation and better control.3
Systems from taxation to incorporating a company are being moved online, through e-governance. The Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) has taken the following major initiatives to deliver faster and clear processes towards Ease of Doing Business and standardization: Introduction of web-based service Reserve Unique Name (RUN) for making the name reservation process quick and easy. Re-engineering the process of allotment of Director Identification Number (DIN) by allotting it through the combined SPICe form Exemption of MCA fee for company incorporation E-KYC drive for directors of all companies India has improved its ranking on the World Bank's Doing Business 2019 report released on 31 October 2018, by moving up to number 77.
3New insolvency code
The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 (enacted on 28 May 2016) consolidates all rules and laws relating to insolvency into a single legislation. This has helped India’s bankruptcy code to be at par with global standards. The code is designed to promote entrepreneurship—it enables companies to tide over financial difficulties and opt for restructuring while fulfilling orders at the same time. It also promotes greater confidence among investors and increases credit availability, by strengthening procedures.
By October 2017, more than 2,050 insolvency applications had been filed before the National Company Law Tribunal and 112 applications had been admitted. The code has helped India improve the Ease of Doing Business. India moved up 33 ranks in the Resolving Insolvency indicator of the World Bank’s Doing Business Report in 2017.

The Sagarmala Programme, on the other hand, focuses on connectivity by sea. It forecasts a role for multiple central ministries and agencies, as well as state governments.
