NITI Aayog made useful presentations on Aspirational Districts and performance-based incentives in its first interaction with 15th Finance Commission.
Issues of performance-based incentives and certain other important terms of reference need to be addressed both to reward and incentivise the states in the framework of the constitution to improve the outcomes.
NITI Aayog emphasised the importance of bringing the states onboard.
NITI Aayog also discussed the Atal Tinkering Labs under Atal Innovation Mission which is creating a revolution in the field of education.
The 15th Finance Commission appreciated the ideas presented. More such interactions will continue in coming months.
