State/UT Start-up ranking exercise initiated by DIPP

State/UT Start-up ranking exercise initiated by DIPP

Posted by P. Charitha on September 25th 2017

To give a boost to startups, the Centre has initiated an exercise to rank states and union territories on the basis of measures being taken by them to promote budding entrepreneurs, a government official has said. "We have discussed the initial framework. Soon, we will be formalising that. By next month, we will be able to prepare that," the official added.
The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) will facilitate the process of ranking and it would be done by a third party. "We are holding detailed consultations on parameters over which ranking can be done," the official, who did not wish to be named, said.
The framework for ranking states/UTs on the basis of initiatives taken by them to promote startups was discussed in the state startup conference earlier this month.
Parameters, which are under discussion, for the rankings include a:
Well-defined startup policy,
Start-up cell, 
Portal dexterity, 
Network of mentors, 
Participation in the public procurement, 
Number of incubators/accelerators ,
Kind of funding support and
Tax incentives.
The DIPP with the help of World Bank already ranks states in terms of measures they are taking to promote ease of doing business.
