Independence Day to announce a new paradigm for this “institution” (Source: Express photo by Renuka Puri) Related News The prime minister spoke from the ramparts of the Red Fort this morning putting to rest all speculation about the future of the Planning Commission I write as a member of 10 years standing of this apex think-tank The Planning Commission was the brainchild of Jawaharlal Nehru who created it by cabinet order; it has no legislative sanction Prime Minister Narendra Modi used the country’s highest platform its 68th Independence Day to announce a new paradigm for this “institution” He carefully avoided the use of the word “commission” thereby removing the nomenclature of “Planning Commission” from government files The new forum he said will be formed with states as primary stakeholders in the grand project of planning for the country He was categorical that the old structure will not serve in the new world where states are powerful entities and all have to pull together In 2014 the Centre can no longer retain the driver’s seat When I look back at the last decade I see evidence of the commission’s phenomenal output especially in reports of ground realities and what needs to be done These were not produced in the air-conditioned rooms of Yojana Bhavan or other boardrooms but in the remotest parts of India: in Dharmapuri Tamil Nadu; Kokrajhar Assam; Halol and Kalol Gujarat; Muzaffarnagar Uttar Pradesh; Alwar Rajasthan; Bilaspur Chhatisgarh — I could go on and on In his speech today the prime minister also spoke about “another India” that he wants to see integrated with the rest of India across the digital divide Whether it is time to change the aakaar of the Planning Commission was feverishly discussed within Yojana Bhavan during our term in UPA 2 Blueprints were drawn experts consulted papers written We ensured that the process was inclusive; it involved members senior officers researchers — anyone from within the system and many from outside such as NGOs corporations and above all the states At joint meetings of the Planning Commission and state planning boards we discussed alternative paradigms At his last meeting with us then prime minister Manmohan Singh asked us for new thinking and new directions in planning to meet contemporary challenges This is a watershed time for the commission It is also time to reflect on its role especially in the 10 years I witnessed its operations from the inside and what needs to be retained within whatever form the new entity takes The Planning Commission was to be an “essay in persuasion” as Manmohan Singh said for the states and sectoral ministries Several platforms for this were provided within its framework There were annual plan discussions with the states quarterly and half-yearly reviews with ministries and one or two massive meetings of the National Development Council Meetings were proposed (and some held) on specific cross-cutting issues such as water energy and more recently violence against women My assessment is that we could have used these forums better to demand accountability from the ministries and states Instruments were devised and applied such as the results framework document against which secretaries would asses their performance Reference to previous years’ discussions with states gave us an opportunity to rank them on their performance By the same measure states could express unhappiness with various aspects of Central plans and schemes Solutions were proposed Frank discussions yielded good results This aspect of our work needs to continue in some institutionalised form One or two NDCs are not sufficient The poet Ali Sardar Jafri said “guftgu bund na ho/ baat se baat chale” The dialogue between the Centre and states needs many forums so it keeps flowing In this context the relationship we fostered with the state planning boards should be retained It is likely that the announcement of change at the Centre will be followed by states Whatever happens it is important that the links beginning to be forged between the Central and state planning boards be encouraged The best part of my criss-cross journeys in India was the pools of goodness I found everywhere I went In Gadchiroli women lowered infant mortality by providing home-based neonatal care In Jalpaiguri young boys and girls created a protection ring to save villagers from elephant attacks In Dewas community effort stopped the heinous practice of lifting maila (rubbish) head loads by Valmiki and Hela women In Ganiyari a team of doctors created a decent hospital and dignified care for the poorest tribals To project these as replicable practices is the work of planning and this needs to continue PPPPs — or public-private-people partnership — should also remain as a concept because planning without the participation of people is mere ephemera We being the nodal entity for the NGO sector provided a window for the concerned public who could partner with the
