Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday reconstituted the National Institution of Transforming India (NITI) Aayog by inducting a few Cabinet ministers.
He was in conversation with author and economist Bibek Debroy and senior journalist Kaveere Bamzai about whether lessons from our epics need to be in our curriculum.
In the video, the EAC-PM chairman also pointed out that India does not have any robust statistical data on job creation after the year 2011-12.
Debroy said only seven countries in the world had actually implemented the GST system in its true form and only two countries, including India, had implemented a federal GST.
Former finance minister and BJP leader Yashwant Sinha believes that India is in the grip of “tax terrorism”.
The Council, which met for the first time today, has identified ten themes, including economic growth and job creations, that need attention.
Niti Aayog member Bibek Debroy took a dig at former Finance Minister Yashwant Sinha's critique of the economy and said what Sinha called a "serious emergency" was actually a "minor cold".
