With an aim to ensure ease of doing business by fostering a more conducive business environment for Newspaper publishers and TV channels, the Minister of Information and Broadcasting Anurag Singh Thakur has launched four transformative portals that promise to revolutionize the media landscape in India.  These portals will also enhance transparency and efficiency in government communication, provide easy access to authentic Government videos and create a comprehensive database of Local Cable Operators (LCOs) enabling the Government to streamline regulatory processes in the cable television sector in future.

The Minister said that today, India is viewed as an attractive destination for investment, with global companies eager to establish businesses in India and he recalled Prime Minister Narendra Modi's emphasis on transformative governance and economic reforms has greatly improved the ease of doing business in India and added that this has led to increased investment from both existing businesses and new entrepreneurs. He also stated that the startup ecosystem, in particular, has flourished, with a significant increase in the number of startups and unicorns.

Elaborating on recognition of Government’s achievements towards improving ease of doing business, Thakur said that these have been recognized globally, as evidenced by its improved rankings in international indices like the World Bank's Ease of Doing Business Index and the Logistic Performance Index. He further said that the success of platforms like the Government e-Marketplace (GeM) reflect the government's efforts to create a level playing field for MSMEs and small businesses. He added that Prime Minister Modi's leadership has not only focused on economic reforms but also on fostering a mindset transformation, recognizing entrepreneurs as partners in national development. This approach has led to increased wealth creation, job opportunities, and higher incomes, benefiting the country's overall welfare and development.
