NEW DELHI: The Rajasthan government does not appear to agree with the ease of doing business rankings for states put out by the Centre, pointing out that the rankings do not factor in the state's efforts to curb inspector raj and simplify labour laws. It has also mooted a 360 degree appraisal mechanism whereby states can also make policy recommendations to the Centre.
"We know this is a difficult exercise and some assessments are unfair, (but) we are not disputing the findings," said the state's industries commissioner (industries) Abhay Kumar. "We have directions to understand and remove the bottlenecks that have been identified and we will send our teams to other states where the report says there are better systems in place," he told ET.
The state has been ranked sixth with a score of 61% on implementing 98 action points identified by the Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion or DIPP to simplify business rules, and has been categorised an aspiring business leader in the report that ranked Gujarat as the best state to do business.
