Policy Challenges

This refers to the paper “Prospects and Policy Challenges in the Twelfth Plan” by Montek S Ahluwalia (EPW, 21 March 2011). I wish to make a few observations.

Speci cally, there are a lot of lessons that can be and need to be discerned from this piece, which form a recipe for the state governments to implement. The road map for the much-needed governance reforms at the state level is almost fully laid out – and this is a major takeaway.
