THOUGH INDIA has jumped up 30 positions in the World Bank’s ‘ Ease of doing Business’ index, there are still many hurdles to cross for companies. Experts say there are still 80-90 compliance norms that companies struggle with. Despite the government’s effort to make it easier to incorporate a company or get it listed, shutting down a business is still a nightmare. Overall, the government’s grip is tightening, say most companies. Compliances on legal metrology, shop and establishment certificates stamping vary for each state, making it cumbersome especially for small and mid-sized businesses. The government’s focus on over-regulation, instead of enforcement, is hurting businesses.
