Government of India, in partnership with the Government of Maharashtra and NCT of Delhi, and Municipal Corporations of Greater Mumbai and Delhi, have over last few years made several reforms in the process of granting construction permits.
In 2014 the Government of India (GoI) launched an ambitious program of regulatory reforms aimed at making it easier to do business in India. Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” campaign focused on attracting foreign investment, boosting manufacturing and improving the country’s overall competitiveness. The government started focusing on Doing Business indicators to show investors India’s commitment to reform. These constant efforts by GoI have paid off as India has taken a significant leap to rank 63rd in Doing Business 2020: World Bank Report as compared to its 130th rank out of 190 countries in 2016.
