New Delhi: The NITI Aayog has kick-started the exercise for drafting the Vision Document 2035, a 15-year vision for India starting from 2020, with a mandate for a paradigm shift in policy thinking and formulation.

The Prime Minister’s Office has directed the Aayog to engage the best Indian and overseas subject experts for consultation while preparing the document, saying business-as-usual approach will not work, a senior government official told ET.

“The directive from above is to think globally and act locally, whereby we are identifying best experts and practices worldwide across a dozen sectors to draft an outcome oriented document with policy prescriptions that can bring about a shift in approach to addressing India’s key problems of unemployment, lower exports and stagnation in the agricultural sector,” said the official, requesting not to be identified.

While the key chapters in the vision document have yet to be finalised, the government’s think tank is holding deliberations on important issues such as using data for improving governance, ways to push rural income, measures to boost Industry 4.0, making India a preferred manufacturing destination, ways to make India an export hub across multiple sectors, skilling and upskilling and ways to address unemployment and underemployment in the country.

“It has been a very conscious decision to have dedicated teams to work on each subject or chapter. Since it is a long-term projection, we will have to take states on board before finalising the document,” said the official.

The Aayog has set up an expert committee on each subject to draft the guidelines.
