Andaman and Nicobar Islands and Gujarat have emerged as best performers in the second edition of startup ranking of states.
The DPIIT (Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade) has been conducting the ranking exercise to push states to work proactively to uplift the startup ecosystem. Gujarat continued to remain in the top spot, ahead of states such as Karnataka that is popular as a startup hub.
As many as 22 states and three union territories (UTs) had participated in the exercise.
DPIIT had said on Thursday i.e. 10th September ,“An evaluation committee comprising of independent experts from the startup ecosystem, carried out a detailed assessment of responses across various parameters. Many parameters involved getting feedback from beneficiaries which was gathered through more than 60,000 calls made in 11 different languages to empathetically connect with beneficiaries to ascertain the real pulse at the implementation levels.”
