 In spite of climbing 35 scores in the Worldwide Development File, from 81 out of 2015-16 to 46 of every 2021, India slacks in the quantity of licenses conceded which is as yet a part contrasted with driving world economies, the Monetary Review 2021-22 said.


The vast majority of India's new companies are in the IT/information based area and licensed innovation, explicitly licenses, are vital to this information based economy.

India's positioning in Worldwide Development File has climbed 35 positions which is a "noteworthy advancement, yet the quantity of licenses conceded in India is as yet a portion contrasted with licenses allowed in China, the US, Japan and Korea", as per the Review, postponed in the Parliament on Monday.

The quantity of licenses recorded in India has gone up from 39,400 of every 2010-11 to 45,444 out of 2016-17 to 58,502 out of 2020-21 and the licenses allowed in India has gone up from 7,509 to 9,847 to 28,391 during a similar time span.
