New Delhi: Commending the NITI Aayog’s initiative of promoting competition among states, Cabinet Secretary P.K. Sinha said on Monday that a similar strategy could be used by states to promote competition between different districts.

“Competition between states being promoted by the NITI Aayog is very useful. (It) can be used by the states to promote competition between districts,” Sinha said at the national conference of Chief Secretaries.

NITI Aayog CEO Amitabh Kant added that efficiency in governance and administration alone will ensure that India’s “worst performing” districts become the best, while its Vice Chairman Arvind Panagariya said that a strong India can be built through building strong states which could be achieved through “job creation, shift to non-farm jobs (and) large firms with high productivity”.

NITI Aayog Member Bibek Debroy said that states needed to work on rationalisation of schemes in the light of 14th Finance Commission recommendations.
