NITI Aayog

 

 

The Government on Thursday replaced the 65-year old Planning Commission, a left over from the Socialist  era,with a NITI Aayog or National Institution for Transforming India ,marking a major shift in policy making by involving states.

To be headed by PM Narendra Modi, the new body will have a governing council comprising CMs of all states and Lt Governors of Union Territories and will work towards fostering “co-operative federalism” for providing a “national agenda” to the Centre and States.

The NITI Aayog ,which will serve as a policy think tank for the central as well as state governments will  have around  7-8 full time members and two part time members, while four Union ministers would serve as ex-officio members. The two part-time members would be from leading universities and research organizations, the number of full time members has not been specified yet.
