The Government plans to launch an index to rank states on the basis of ease of doing agri-business, Parliament was informed Tuesday. Minister of State for Agriculture Parshottam Rupala replied in affirmative when asked if the government was planning to launch such an index.

“To ensure that reform agenda of the Government is implemented by the desired pace by all states/UTs, a need is felt to develop a competitive spirit between the states. Keeping this in mind, to rank the states through an index, a concept note along with parameters for developing an index has been circulated to all states and union territories inviting their views,” he said in a written reply to Lok Sabha.
