NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant yesterday said that the development agenda of 2022, ‘New India 2022’, will be prepared by June and given to Chief Ministers.

Kant informed that development agenda of 2022 will be prepared by June and given to Chief Ministers. Several other issues will also be discussed. “Instead of the five-year plan, we are preparing a 15-year vision document, a development agenda by 2022 and three years action plan which is already in public domain,” Kant said.

Speaking during an interactive session organised by the Indian Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in New Delhi, Kant said the government was working on a specific action plan and policy and there will be a global summit on Electric Vehicles in September. He said artificial and blockchain technology offered a lot of opportunities.

He further stated that India must embrace artificial and blockchain technology. There will be no shortage of jobs but different types of job. “India needs to reskill its people. There will be higher paid and skilled jobs,” he said.
