Time for consolidat­ion of reforms: NITI


NITI Aayog Vice-Chairman Rajiv Kumar on Sunday said the time has come for consolidat­ion of reforms, including goods and services tax, bankruptcy code and benami law, initiated by the Modi government in the past 42 months to ensure that the steps deliver the "desired fruits". The new initiative­s in the next 18 months, Kumar said, should focus on health and education sectors as these two are going to be critical for human resource developmen­t. "You know Modi government has done far too much in those 42 months, it has taken some very major steps. My view is that time has come for consolidat­ion and making sure that these reform steps which have been taken yield the desired fruits," he told PTI in an interview. The Narendra Modi-led government came to power in May 2014 and the next general elections are due in 2019.
