India gets business-ready
India's exponentially rise in the Ease of Doing Business rankings has led to opinions emerging from different hues of political leadership. Rahul Gandhi shot out at a rally in Gujarat that Arun Jaitley believed a 'foreign organisation' who had no connection with India's grass root reality. Tejashwi Yadav, leader of Bihar's Opposition too commented saying that the ease of doing business had grown by '16,000 times' hitting out at the rumoured growth in Jai Shah's assets over the last three years. AAP, of course, did not stand back from claiming a stake at the party; it said, confidently that its policies had been central to the growth of doing business in the national capital where online industry licensing and the introduction of a single window system in several sectors had smoothened out the passage for business activities in Delhi. The World Bank's rankings placed India for the first time within the top 100 in the Ease of Doing Business rankings, as India also saw the largest jump ever in its history. This was a congratulatory declaration for the Narendra Modi government who had been capitalising on promoting the idea of easing out business for all players within the Indian market. India had improved in nine out of ten parameters, which were calculated after a thorough compilation of quantitative facts. The time right now is ripe, with Gujarat elections knocking on the door where BJP faces a strong anti-incumbency sentiment. The Congress has been playing the anti-demonetisation and anti-GST card well to irk the traders whose losses during these two policy moves have enraged enough for them to begin shifting their gears against the ruling BJP. Demonetisation and GST have undoubtedly rattled the smaller traders who've had to bear exceptional costs to switch to a digitalised system while also accommodating an entirely new tax structure. Several small trading units, like the cricket bat makers of Patiala and the idol makers of Kolkata, have faced a strong backlash as their business activities had been entirely reliant on the cash economy which was completely uprooted and realigned after the declaration of demonetisation. With time though, the economy is expected to relieve itself. The World Bank rankings come as a pleasant surprise and a boost for the Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, to keep the economy rolling with a primary focus on easing out business for small and medium enterprises, who are still recovering from the two big policy shifts. These rankings would assist the BJP's Gujarat campaign and could also spell ill for the Opposition who have been relying on the anti-policy sentiments. While these rankings come as a boost, the morale of the policymakers shouldn't rest in bloating pride; instead, the everyday functioning of small and medium enterprises, which are still rattled after the policy shifts, should be better nurtured.
