Arun Jaitley

Arun jaitlyShri Arun Jaitley
Finance Minister Arun Jaitley made the following observation on the necessity of creating NITI Aayog, "The 65 year-old Planning Commission had become a redundant organisation. It was relevant in a command economy structure, but not any longer. India is a diversified country and its states are in various phases of economic development along with their own strengths and weaknesses. In this context, a ‘one size fits all’ approach to economic planning is obsolete. It cannot make India competitive in today’s global economy."
