NEW DELHI: The Indian government will unveil Sunday its development agenda, New IndiaNSE  which will outline ways to expedite economic growth at its fourth governing council meet.

 PM Modi will chair the six-hour meeting that will be attended by chief ministers of all states and top government ministers, according to a report by Indian based The Economic Times.

 The council, which is Niti Aayog's apex body, may also discuss plans for celebrations to mark the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

"Topmost on the agenda will be our strategy for New India at 75, which Niti Aayog has prepared.

 The draft will be presented to chief ministers for their approval. Then there will also be discussion on aspirational districts," Niti Aayog vice chairman Rajiv Kumar had said earlier.

 

With the BJP in power in a majority of states, the Aayog is hopeful that its development vision will go through without many objections from states.

 The think tank has been working on the strategy document for New India 2022 that will outline measures to boost economic growth in the short, medium and long term.

The Aayog earlier planned to come out with three documents-a three-year action agenda, a seven-year medium-term strategy paper and a 15-year vision document.


The think tank, in a presentation last year, had said the foundation for freedom from six problems-poverty, dirt, corruption, terrorism, casteism and communalism-will be laid by 2022 when India celebrates 75 years of independence.

Kumar will make a detailed presentation on the roadmap for rapid development of the Indian economy. The meeting is likely to highlight to all states the key flagship programmes of the government and their impact on socio-economic development of the country.
