Doing Business in India 2023 guide

India defied global trends in 2022 to witness record M&A activity and remains among the fastest growing economies in the world. Despite economic headwinds due to geopolitical factors and a global consumption slowdown, the World Bank revised its 2022-23 GDP forecast for India upwards to 6.9 percent from 6.5 percent (in October 2022).

In 2022, India boasted of over 100 start-up unicorns and the third largest start-up ecosystem in the world. The government powered through trade negotiations with leading markets to conclude FTAs with the UAE and Australia. Infrastructure spending too has been robust with connectivity projects sanctioned and sped up. Meanwhile, beneficiaries were finalized for several production-linked incentives (PLI) schemes announced over the last two years to enhance domestic manufacturing capacity. Business reforms – via reducing procedural complexities and digital governance – have been pushed alongside policies to attract greater foreign investment in major states.

Amid the ongoing global headwinds underlined by post-pandemic spillovers, supply chain disruptions due to the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, and possible recessionary pressures facing developed economies, the Indian economy has stood resilient. India is after all well on its way to register a growth rate of seven percent in FY23.

To reach India’s target of becoming a US$5 trillion economy, corporate firms and MNCs have had high hopes for the Union Budget 2023–24, particularly with regard to tax reforms, measures to facilitate ease of doing business, and continued capex emphasis on infrastructure.
