Putting a final lid on the Planning era, the Niti Aayog is gearing up to launch the three-year action plan from April 1. The 12th five years plan is coming to an end on March 31. Under the new system, states will be encouraged to meet the targets of various schemes or face the prospects of drying up of the fund flows. The new action plan will end the prevailing system of the centre patiently waiting for the state governments to implement the schemes. The state governments, which adopt a number of reform oriented legislative bills as part of the reform agenda will get incentives. NITI Aayog has also been entrusted the work on the 15-year Vision Document and a seven year strategy, which would guide the government’s development works till 2030.
