Niti Aayog on Tuesday shortlisted six states to become a “role model” states for better health and education systems under its Sustainable Action for Transforming Human Capital (SATH) programme .
The government think tank selected Uttar Pradesh, Assam and Karnataka for health, and Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand and Odisha for education sectors, under its SATH programme.
On Twitter, Niti Aayog posts: “After rigorous competition, NITI selects UP, Assam & K’taka to transform their #Health sector in 3 years! #SATH #CompetitiveFederalism 1/2.”
In a different post, it said: “To radically transform quality of #Education in India, NITI selects MP, J’khand & Odisha under #SATH through #CompetitiveFederalism 2/2.”
The panel had received invitation from 16 states and UTs, of which 14 made their presentations. The final shortlists were made on the basis of, as maintained by Niti, “expression of interest, presentation by the states, and assessment of commitment.”
Niti Aayog earlier announced to work closely with their state machinery to design a robust roadmap of intervention, develop a program 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.
Niti will be working in collaboration with ITI along with McKinsey & Company and IPE Global consortium to execute SATH programme.
