Karnataka emerges ‘top achiever’ in Ease of Doing Business rankings

Karnataka has bagged the ‘Top Achiever’ position under the implementation of the ‘Ease of Doing Business’ ranking of States/Union Territories released by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) of the Centre on Thursday.

"The State rose up to this rank based on its ability to better implementation of varied reforms across areas ranging from the EoDB, to Affidavit Based Clearance. Land reforms, Central Inspection System, Single-Window Clearances to Sectoral policies," he said in a release.
