NITI Aayog sets up committee on project rationalisation

A working group of the NITI Aayog under its CEO Sindhushree Khullar will prepare a report within one month on how to make implementation of Centrally Sponsored Schemes (CSS) more effective.

This was decided at the first meeting of the sub-group of NITI Aayog which held its first meeting on Friday to deliberate on rationalisation of CSS. The meeting was held in the convenership of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

The report will be taken up for discussion on April 27 in the next meeting of the sub-group, Chouhan told reporters.

“We have decided to set up a working group under NITI Aayog to prepare a draft report on the suggestions made by various Chief Ministers in the meeting,”  Chouhan, convener of the sub-group comprising 11 chief ministers, said. He said the sub-group was constituted to deliberate on funding pattern on CSS after the Finance Commission recommended an increase in the states’ share in central taxes to 42 per cent from the existing 32 per cent.
