NITI Aayog Partners with Piramal Foundation to ‘Transform Aspirational Districts’ Across India

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s vision for a holistic approach to balanced development across the country, through effective implementation of government schemes in the Aspirational Districts, is expected to lead to an overall improvement in the Human Development Index. For this, it is imperative that all section of society come together and development in these districts turns into a mass movement. Towards this, Niti Aayog and Piramal Foundation today entered into a Statement of Intent (SoI) to work closely with the District Collectors and Key officers to support the “Transformation of Aspirational Districts”. Earlier this year, NITI Aayog ranked 115 Aspirational Districts selected by the Government on 6 socio-economic parameters, pertaining to Health & Nutrition, Education, Financial Inclusion and Skill Development, Agriculture and Water Resources and Basic infrastructure. NITI Aayog has highlighted multiple challenges across indicators that need to be disentangled, in order to transform these aspirational districts across states in India.
