How did India improve its rank by 23 positions on the Ease of Doing Business Ranking?

Rakesh Reddy, for The Property House magazine,

The real estate industry has been impacted to a great extent because of numerous policy interventions like the implementation of GST, Real Estate Regulatory Act (RERA) and the Benami Transaction (Prohibition) Amendment Act.

India’s current ranking in the ease of granting construction permits has improved by 129 places since last year.
