India's low rank in the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Ranking 2016 reflects, inter alia, the difficulties faced in enforcing contracts. The two main areas where the World Bank's report faults India is in the time it takes to resolve a case, and the cost of enforcing a contractual claim. Indeed, the delay and high cost of enforcing claims affect the judicial system across all levels in India, and now needs to be tackled on a war footing. India's low rank for several years now is a reflection of the lack of serious judicial reform by successive governments.
Among the many long term and short term measures necessary for easier enforcement of contracts, the most pressing is the reform of the civil procedural laws. While substantial amendments have been made to parts of the Code of Civil Procedure, 1908 over the years (most recently in 2002), they cannot be said to have had the intended impact as the world bank rankings. The data from the national judicial Data Grid goes on to validate that.
