Misrepresenting information is the favourite past time of the PM. India did move up 42 places to 100 in 2018 from 142 in 2015 on the World Bank’s Ease of Doing Business ranking, a measure of business-friendliness, the ranks are not comparable because of frequent revisions in parameters. After the revisions, India’s ranked jumped from 130 to 100. Even the aggregate scores are not very different when comparing the official Doing Business scores and some revised series that irons out methodological changes. The big change comes from ranking, not scoring. It seems that India’s rank moved up and down also due to the addition of new countries to the Ease of Doing Business.
