NEW DELHI: NITI Aayog will soon partner with three states in the country to turn them into role models for others in the field of education and health. The initiative has been named “SATH" (sustainable action for transforming human capital) and is being launched by the think-tank panel in response to state governments’ plea for technical assistance.

SATH is being unveiled by the NITI Aayog as part of its endeavour for co-operative federalism. As part of the initiative, NITI Aayog will work with the state governments to prepare blueprint, which can help transform the education and health sector in the states. The NITI Aayog along with private consultants would “hand-hold” states in achieving transformation.

The three states will be chosen after a well laid out process in which the state governments have to make presentation of their intents and objectives. 

The NITI Aayog in a statement on Saturday said that 16 states had taken part in the exercise out of which five have been shortlisted for the final round. The three states for turnaround as role models would be selected on the basis of the assessment of the likelihood of success of the programme and impact, added the think-tank in its statement.

Andhra Pradesh, Assam, Bihar, Chandigarh, Goa, Gujarat, Haryana, Jharkhand, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Punjab, Telangana and Uttar Pradesh had taken part in the exercise out of which three would be finally chosen by the NITI Aayog soon.
