Highlighting India’s jump in ease of doing business ranking, Union Minister Prakash Javadekar said, “India is becoming a very hot destination for FDI investments and other investors because of the conscious policy decisions and practices that are adopted by the Modi government. These decisions are providing ease of doing business and ease of living; therefore, people are preferring India over other countries. We were 142nd in the ease of doing business rankings in 2014, last year we were at 77, which was a long jump to that end in just four years. However, this year we have again jumped 14 steps further and become 63rd country in ease of doing business.
