Modi government 2.0’s first 100 day plan: 167 ‘transformative ideas’ shortlisted to be implemented by October 15th

All ministries have been asked to put out performance monitoring dashboards on all major the major schemes that would be worked on so as to enable public access to the progress made on these schemes.

Modi government 2.0 has shortlisted 167 ‘transformative ideas’ and has set an internal target of 100 days to implement the plan. The first 100 days of the Modi government’s second stint would be completed on October 15, 2019.

Cabinet secretary Pradeep K Sinha in a communication to all secretaries on July 10 said that based on the recommendations of the Sectoral Group of Secretaries, and after further consideration by the Group of Ministers, “it has been decided to implement 167 transformative ideas as the 100-day programme of the Government.”

July 5, 2019, to October 15, 2019, will be the period for implementing these ideas, which have been shortlisted after several rounds of presentations by all the ministers and top-level deliberations.

Few among the approved ideas of the Modi 2.0’s 100 days plan:

  • The department of administrative reforms and public grievances’ plan to upgrade the Centralised Public Grievance Redress and Monitoring System to expedite processing of public grievances.
  • Plans to launch a national e-services delivery assessment and a new Central Secretariat Office Manual of Office Procedure.
  • The human resource development ministry has been tasked with launching a mega drive to fill up 300,000 faculty vacancies across all higher education institute.
  • The ministry of culture shall ensure completion of the structure of the museum on prime ministers of India at Nehru Memorial Museum & Library.
  • The inauguration of three new barrack museums at Red Fort.
  • Several activities associated with the commemoration of Mahatma Gandhi’s 150th birth anniversary.

The officials maintained that the idea behind the 100-day plan is to ensure that the Modi government 2.0 wastes no time in deciding its course of action. It added that the BJP-led government had begun preparations for this, even as the Lok Sabha elections were underway.

Meanwhile, Sinha’s communication accessed by the Economic Times confirmed that the secretaries have been tasked with implementing these ideas under their own supervision. The cabinet secretary has also said he will be monitoring the progress of this ‘100-day plan’ through weekly status reports that each secretary will be expected to send to him every Friday by 5 pm.

Performance monitoring of the 100-days plan

Further, all ministries have been asked to put out performance monitoring dashboards on all major the major schemes that would be worked on so as to enable public access to the progress made on these schemes. Moreover, according to officials, a consolidation of training institutions and printing presses under every ministry has also been sought.

Keeping up the promises made in the election manifesto, the Modi government, almost immediately after taking an oath for its second tenure, kickstarted India’s road-building mission with an ambitious and exacting daily target of several kilometres of newly built roads.

Moreover, keeping up to another key promise, that is the promise of roads in even the smallest and remotest hamlet, the Modi government is also planning to connect all villages with roads, irrespective of the villages’ size or population, before the Prime Minister’s Independence Day speech on August 15.

This will mark a departure from the policy to date under which roads connected all houses in villages with more than 500 persons in the plains and more than 250 persons in hilly areas.

In addition to this, the Modi government also plans to build 5,000 kilometres of roads by 2022 in areas which have been already identified by the Home Ministry. Moreover, in the next five years, around 18,000 kilometres of roads built under the initial phases of PMGSY will now be widened and strengthened.

Recently, Union Minister of Agriculture, Radha Mohan Singh had elaborated on the steps that had been taken to improve the affairs of the agricultural sector by Modi government 2.0. Singh reaffirmed the government’s commitment toward doubling farmers’ income.

Moreover, Modi himself, on June 20, interacted with farmers across the country via the NaMo app and reasserted his government’s commitment to its goal for India’s agriculture sector of doubling farmers’ income by 2022.

Recently, Minister of Commerce and Industries, Suresh Prabhu had also announced that the UAE and Saudi Arabia had decided to use India to address their food security concerns and that the two countries were looking to invest in the agricultural sector in India. He had further stated that the NDA government has removed restrictions on organic and processed products which will benefit Indian farmers who are looking for a higher price for their products.
