BRAP Objective

  • The broader aim is to boost investor confidence, foster business friendly climate and augment Ease of Doing Business through a system of assessing states based on their performance in the implementation of Business Reforms Action Plan.
  • The objective of assessing the States/UTs is not to create a hierarchy amongst States/UTs but to rather create an enabling framework wherein learnings can be shared amongst States/UTs which in turn will lead to a nationwide spill over of good practices.
  • The assessment gives full weightage to the feedback obtained from actual users/respondents at the ground level, who provided their feedback about the effective implementation of reforms.
  • DPIIT since 2014 has been assessing States/UTs based on their performance in implementation of prescribed reforms in Business Reforms Action Plan (BRAP) exercise.
