Improving India's ranking in the World Bank's index is "reasonably possible" if various machineries, including the tax department, make concerted efforts to improve the three laggard parameters, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said. He said have not made much headway in most areas except trade facilitation, which helps cut costs and make it more efficient.
