    "Taxation remains an issue in India. However, digitisation is coming in but people are looking at consistency of application," Heald said.
    The (UKIBC) Ease of Doing Business Report, released on Tuesday, highlights that UK businesses’ perceptions of corruption as a barrier to operating in India has halved since 2015. Another key finding was that a remarkable 46 percent of UK Businesses responding had plans to expand their investments in India in the next 12 months.
