NITI Aayog’s ambitious plan to create six role-model states starts taking shape

To give the education sector a major thrust, the NITI Aayog on November 24 has signed an MoU with Odisha and reviewed the progress of projects in MP and Jharkhand under its pilot programme SATH.

“NITI signs MoU with Odisha, and reviews progress of MP, Odisha & Jharkhand in education sector to transform the states under #SATH,” the NITI Aayog said in a tweet.

According to media reports, the NITI Aayog has on June 12 launched 'Sustainable Action for Transforming Human Capital' (SATH) to partner with three states and turn them into role models for other states by helping them improve their education sector.

In a major push to competitive and cooperative federalism, the NITI Aayog had on August 9, 2017 shortlisted six states to become “role model” states for better health and education systems under its SATH programme.

Niti Aayog had earlier announced to work closely with the state machinery to design a robust roadmap of intervention, develop a programme governance structure, set up monitoring and tracking mechanisms, hand-hold state institutions through the execution stage and provide support on a range of institutional measures to achieve the end objectives.

Under the SATH programme, the government's premier think tank has shortlisted these states in each sector after inviting all states and Union Territories to participate in the initiative.

A NITI Aayog statement said the think tank and its knowledge partners will provide strategic, technical and implementation support to three states for each sector and will handhold the states through a time-bound and outcome-oriented process.

Known as the National Institute of Transforming India, the NITI Aayog is the premier think tank of the Government of India to provide directional and policy inputs. It was formed on January 1, 2015 and replaced the Planning Commission of the country.
