The government believe that economic transformation cannot happen without public participation. Development must become a Jan Andolan.
India is on the cusp of a major transformation and only a collective effort will ensure that we achieve a New India by 2022 just like independence was achieved within five years of Mahatma Gandhi giving his call of Quit India in 1942.
The ‘Strategy for New India @ 75’ captures three key messages from the Prime Minister:
First, development must become a mass movement, in which every Indian recognizes her role and also experiences the tangible benefits accruing to her in the form of better ease of living.
Second, the development strategy should help achieve broad-based economic growth to ensure balanced development across all regions and states and across sectors. This implies embracing new technologies, fostering innovation, upskilling, modernization of agriculture and mainstreaming of regions such as the North East, hilly states and the 115 Aspirational Districts.
Third, there is a need to bridge the gap between public and private sector performance. In order to put in place a ‘development state’ in place of the ‘soft state’, there is a need of ensuring efficient delivery of public services, rooting out corruption and black economy, formalizing the economy, expanding the tax base, improving the ease of doing business, nursing the stressed commercial banking sector back to a healthy state, and stopping leakages through direct benefit transfers and widespread use of the JAM trinity.
