Solution

The correct option is A Only 3 and 4
Aayog’s aim is to foster involvement and participation in the economic policy-making process of the state governments by adopting the bottom-up approach in planning.
Aayog has decided to come up with a 15-year vision document in tandem with global trends, which will abandon the concept of five-year plans prepared by the PC since 1951.
The first 15-year vision document will come into effect from 2017-18 after the end of the 12th Five year plan. It will be formulated with central objective of eradication poverty. It will come along with a seven-year National Development Agenda which will lay down the programmes schemes, and strategies to achieve the long-term vision The long vision document (perspective plan) will comprise of three-year macroeconomic framework. The framework will predict growth indicators that will be synced with the 14th Finance Commission recommendation.
It will also be coterminous with the UNDP’s 2030 sustainable development goals to which India is committed to meet broader social objectives.
Through ‘Women Transforming India’ initiative
NITI Aayog seeks to directly engage with women leaders from across urban and rural areas of India. It will collect entries in the form of written essays/stories, preferably accompanied by photographs that set a context to the narrative. These stories will be reflecting new ground broken by women in empowering themselves and others or challenging stereotypes. This initiative is also considered as an important step forward in furthering the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which includes Gender as a one of the stand-alone goal.
