NITI Aayog's comprehensive national Strategy for New India is a detailed exposition of forty-one crucial areas that recognizes the progress already made, identifies binding constraints, and suggests the way forward for achieving clearly stated objectives for 2022-23.
Strategy for New India @75 was released on 19 December 2018 by then Union Finance Minister Shri Arun Jaitley, in the presence of NITI Aayog Vice Chairman Dr Rajiv Kumar, Members Dr Ramesh Chand and Dr VK Saraswat, and CEO Shri Amitabh Kant.
Drawing inspiration and direction from the Hon'ble Prime Minister’s clarion call for establishing a New India by 2022, NITI Aayog embarked on a journey of formulating the Strategy document in 2017.
NITI Aayog followed an extremely participative approach in preparing the strategy. Each Vertical in NITI Aayog had in-depth consultations with all three groups of stakeholders: business persons, academics, and government officials. This was followed by consultations at the level of the Vice Chairman with a diverse group of eminent persons from seven sets of stakeholders that included scientists and innovators, farmers, civil society organizations, think tanks, labour representatives and trade unions, and industry representatives.
Central Ministries were brought on board for inputs, suggestions and comments, with each draft of individual chapters being circulated for consultations. The draft document was also circulated to all the States and Union Territories from whom valuable suggestions were received and incorporated.
Over 800 stakeholders from within the government—Central, State and District levels—and about 550 external experts were consulted during the preparation of the document.
The overarching focus of the Strategy document is to further improve the policy environment in which private investors and other stakeholders can contribute their fullest towards achieving the goals set out for New India 2022 and propel India towards a USD 5 trillion economy by 2030.
Going forward, the private sector, civil society and citizens will be encouraged to draw up their own strategies to complement and supplement the steps outlined in the Strategy document.
The forty-one chapters in the document have been disaggregated under four sections: Drivers, Infrastructure, Inclusion and Governance.
