The National Institution for Transforming India, also called NITI Aayog , was formed via a resolution of the Union Cabinet on January 1, 2015. NITI Aayog is the premier policy ‘Think Tank’ of the Government of India, providing both directional and policy inputs. While designing strategic and long term policies and programmes for the Government of India, NITI Aayog also provides relevant technical advice to the Centre and States.
The Government of India, in keeping with its reform agenda, constituted the NITI Aayog to replace the Planning Commission instituted in 1950. This was done in order to better serve the needs and aspirations of the people of India. An important evolutionary change from the past, NITI Aayog acts as the quintessential platform of the Government of India to bring States to act together in national interest, and thereby fosters Cooperative Federalism.
At the core of NITI Aayog’s creation are two hubs – Team India Hub and the Knowledge and Innovation Hub. The Team India Hub leads the engagement of states with the Central government, while the Knowledge and Innovation Hub builds NITI’s think-tank capabilities. These hubs reflect the two key tasks of the Aayog.



A new structure brings in new hope and enthusiasm. As can be seen in the current NITI Aayog, there have been a spur in the planning and brainstorming activities for development.


This is the most important advantage. The planning commission was bound with the idea of 5-year plans, with the coming of NITI Aayog, there have been things like the 15 year vision document and mid-term goals of 7 years with periodic reviews and necessary amendments can be made in due course.


With the planning commission, the whole planning was central, but NITI Aayog takes into account constant consultations with the heads of state governments and union territories
