Soon after announcing the setting up of a new organisation to replace the 64-year-old Planning Commission, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has invited ideas from people on the proposed new plan body.
The government has announced the creation of a special open forum on the website mygov.nic.in for suggestions on the new institution.
"We envision the proposed institution as one that caters to the aspirations of 21st century India and strengthens participation of the States... Let the ideas flow," the Prime Minister said in a statement.
Addressing the nation from the Red Fort on August 15, Modi said, "We need a new body with a new soul... We will have to think about giving a new shape to the Planning Commission... Very soon this new institute will start working in place of Planning Commission."
