Q. Which of the following Institution was replaced by NITI Aayog?
Explanation: By mid-2014, India did show a quite strong mandate and a very stable government came at the Centre.
- We find the new government showing a renewed vigour and zeal in several areas.
- One such area has been its attempts at ‘redefining’ the federal polity of the country for the purpose of promoting growth and development.
- We see a pronounced policy shift in the direction of ‘empowering and keeping state in front’ by giving them more financial space and responsibilities.
- Keeping its promises in the direction, the government abolished the Planning Commission (PC) and replaced it by a new body—the NITI Aayog.
- The acronym NITI stands for National Institution for Transforming India.
