What is very noticeable is that, what helped the ranking up move is the new bill of resolving insolvency. Or the Insolvency Bill; 

here is a look what is insolvency bill

The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 (IBC) is the bankruptcy law of India which seeks to consolidate the existing framework by creating a single law for insolvency and bankruptcy. The Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2015 was introduced in Lok Sabha in December 2015. It was passed by Lok Sabha on 5 May 2016.

It actually means closure of business is made easy by the government, which made it jump 8 points in index.


Here is what it says about Starting a Business

Starting a Business: This topic measures the paid-in minimum capital requirement, number of procedures, time and cost for a small- to sized limited liability company to start up and formally operate in economy’s largest business city.To make the data comparable across 190 economies, Doing Business uses a standardised business that is 100% domestically owned, has start-up capital equivalent to 10 times income per capita, engages in general industrial or commercial activities and employs between 10 and 50 people one month after the commencement of operations, all of whom are domestic nationals. Starting a Business considers two types of local limited liability companies that are identical in all aspects, except that one company is owned by 5 married women and the other by 5 married men. The distance to frontier score for each indicator is the average of the scores obtained for each of the component indicators.
