NITI Aayog to soon set up panel on poverty line

Sat 14 Jan 2017

NITI Aayog, the government’s premier think-tank, will soon set up an expert committee to arrive at a new poverty line, according to an official. “We have said that we needed an expert committee to look at poverty line as most states are not much in sync with each other. We have not formed an expert committee yet but soon we will set up an expert committee to look at poverty line,” said a senior government official. Pursuant to the decision taken at the first meeting of the Governing Council of NITI Aayog held under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Narendra Modi on February 8, 2015, a Task Force on Elimination of Poverty in India was set up by NITI Aayog on March 16, 2015. — PTI
