PM Modi's dig at Opposition

PM Modi was speaking at the "India's Business Reforms" session in New Delhi.

Annette Dixon, Vice President, South Asia region, in the World Bank report that time said,"Having embarked on a strong reform agenda to improve the business environment, the significant jump this year is a result of the Indian government's consistent efforts over the past few years".

Georgieva in a PTI report said, "India's jump of 30 places in World Bank's ease of doing business report is very rare".

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, speaking at an event in New Delhi, applauded India's moving up in the World Bank Ease of Doing Business ranking, saying the worldwide institution has "recognised (the) stupendous work done" by his government.

Commerce and Industry Minister Suresh Prabhu hailed the jump in Ease of Doing Business rankings as an outcome of PM Modi's vision of integrated development. "They are still raising question on its ranking", Prime Minister Modi said without directly referring to the Congress party.

On the implementation of Goods and Services Tax (GST), the Prime Minister said that the World Bank will take note of this reform in the next year's report.

The Prime Minister attributed the improvement in ranking to the government's efforts to make the lives of people easy by effecting reforms in multiple areas including taxation.

What work I have apart from serving the nation, and try to bring a better change in the lives of the people of this country.

Meanwhile, keeping GST reform aside - the World Bank's report stated that India has adopted 37 reforms since 2003.

He also said that India's ranking has improved by 42 places in the last three years. "Some of these people have been employees of the World Bank, and they are questioning India's ranking", PM Modi said, adding that these elements did not want to do any work, but for questioning those who did work.
