Don’t Blame it on NITI Aayog

In this article for Mint, IDFC Institute Resident Senior Fellow Vivek Dehejia argues that NITI Aayog's presentation to the government - Creating a Movement for Change - should be evaluated for what it is supposed to be, a roadmap for the bureaucracy to function better, and not be misconstrued as a statement of economic policy.  

 

"Judged on its own terms, therefore, Creating a movement for change does a credible job of achieving what was intended, which is to galvanize the bureaucracy into making the government function better—which, indeed, has always been central to Modi’s mantra of governance, starting from his days as chief minister of Gujarat and continuing under his tenure as prime minister."
