End of Planning Commission5 min read . Updated: 02 Sep 2014, 12:17 AM IST
If the policy paralysis of last UPA was any indication of why the economy came to a standstill, the Planning Commission is hardly to be blamed
For those expecting bold reforms by the government, the announcement to scrap the Planning Commission by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Independence Day is perhaps the strongest signal of changing priorities. Seen as a relic of the Nehruvian socialist regime, the end of the Commission may only be symbolic but it does raise the obvious question of what next. The confusion on this is obvious with the government seeking suggestions from the public but also asking the same old mandarins of the erstwhile Commission on what needs to be done.
