“Administrative reforms are under way. The NITI Aayog website will be ready in a few days. The process for Transforming India has begun!

“The Planning Commission website has been archived and all related material can be accessed on the following url: > ,” twitted NITI Aayog.

Government replaced the Planning Commission with the NITI (National Institution for Transforming India) Aayog on January 1.

The Aayog has been mandated to serve as a policy think-tank for the central as well as state governments and has Prime Minister as its Chairperson.

The government is yet to announce names of Vice-Chairman (executive head) and other members including five full time members, two part time members and four union ministers as ex-officio members of the Aayog.
