"A large number of states have made significant progress in reforms suggested in BRAP 2017," it said.

The assessment under the BRAP 2017 is based on a combined score consisting of reform evidence score that is based on evidence uploaded by States/UTs and feedback score that is based on response garnered from the actual users of the services provided to the businesses.

DIPP said 17 states have achieved a reform evidence score of more than 90 per cent and 15  have achieved a combined score of 90 per cent and more.

"The states which have achieved 80 per cent or more reforms evidence score represent 84 per cent of the country's area, 90 per cent of the country's population and 79 per cent of India's GDP," it said.

Number of reform actions implemented under BRAP 2017 increased to 7,758 from 2,532 in 2015.
