Just before the fourth Bengal Global Business Summit comes great news: the Business Reforms Action Plan 2017, published a few days back by the Central Government's Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) has placed Bengal as number one in the Implementation Scorecard.This is a huge boost indeed in terms of the ranking too. From number 15 in the 2016 ranking to number one is no mean feat.The implementation Scorecard refers to the implementation of major reforms by a state. For Bengal, for the 2017 ranking, the top five reforms implemented, which were considered for the ranking, areaccess to Information and Transparency Enablers, Single-Window Permission for Projects, Availability of Land, Construction Permit Enablers and Environmental Registration Enablers These rankings are based on certain parameters decided by the World Bank, and the work done by the states according to these parameters is supervised by the World Bank and DIPP. The rankings are basically an inter-state version of the annual country-wise 'Ease of Doing Business' ranking published by the World Bank.Since the parameters on which the Business Reforms Action Plan ranking is based, change constantly, the states have to constantly work hard to fulfill the conditions. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had constituted a committee of senior bureaucrats a few years back to see to it that all the work is being implemented properly.UNI SJC AND
