In the Grant Thornton Global Dynamism Index (GDI), India was ranked at the 34th place out of 60 in “business growth environment”registering a gain of 14 places, since the last version of the index shows an indication of PM Narendra Modi’s attempt to boost the economy.

India ranked 53rd out of 60 in the GDI in “business operating environment” because of poor regulatory environment and a lack of investment in science and technology dragged down India’s overall ranking.
