State Startup Ranking

The Start-up India initiative of the Government of India envisages to build a robust Start-up ecosystem in the country for nurturing innovation and providing opportunities to budding entrepreneurs. The active support of State/UT Governments is crucial for achieving the overall objectives of the program. The core functioning of an enabling ecosystem in a State/UT is a function of the framework and policy put in place along with effective implementation of the same.

Objectives

The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Government of India has undertaken an exercise to assess States/UTs on key areas of interventions that are germane to a healthy Startup ecosystem.

It is expected that this initiative shall support in achieving following objectives:

  • Help bring to fore progress made by the States/ UTs for promoting Startup ecosystem
  • Foster competitiveness & propel the States/ UTs to work proactively
  • Facilitate States/ UTs to identify, learn and replicate good practices

States’ Startup Ranking 2019

The State/ UT Startup Ranking Framework 2019 has been conceived by acknowledging the evolving needs of a dynamic ecosystem. Learnings and feedback from previous years’ ranking exercises have also been incorporated in this years’ framework. There have been significant additions in the framework this year. Some of them include:

  • The Action Points were deliberated and subsequently articulated to minimize ambiguities and increase clarity in the scoring process. This years’ framework includes 30 Action Points as compared to 38 Action Points in last years’ framework.
  • For some Action Points, there was a relaxation in Period of Consideration, since they were being introduced for the first time and have long-term impacts. This includes AP 8: Support from various government departments.
  • Categorization of states/UTs into X and Y: To establish uniformity and ensure standardisation in the ranking process, states and UTs have been divided into Category-X and Category-Y. Wherein the Y category entails all UTs, except Delhi, and all states in North East India, except Assam. Whereas, Category X contains all other states.
    • Prerequisite of documentary evidence: The Framework aims to evaluate States/UTs holistically, thereby it has made documentary evidence of compliance on action points a prerequisite for collection of feedback.
    • Increase in weightage of beneficiary feedback: The evaluation of states/UTs included collecting feedback from the startup beneficiaries on 25 action points out of 30 action points Overall, the weightage given to feedback was 76% of the total score, as compared to 18% weightage given last year.

States’ Startup Ranking 2018

The Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP) announced the first ever States’ Start-up Ranking 2018. DIPP began this exercise from January, 2016.

Overview of Ranking process

The ‘State/UT Startup Ranking Framework’ is spread across 7 areas of intervention with a total of 38 action points and an overall score of 100 marks. The framework also provides the guidelines to support implementation of action points along with good practices against each action point. In order to evaluate States/UTs in a balanced and transparent manner, the implementation of action points by the State/UT Government and feedback from Startup ecosystem components have been given due weightage. Under the framework, out of 38 action points, 21 action points require submission of supporting document(s), 1 action point requires only stakeholder feedback and 16 action points require both the components (supporting document(s) and stakeholder feedback) for assessment of the State/UT Startup initiatives.
