New Delhi, Oct 23: A meeting of the Full Planning Commission is slated for November 8 next to get its stamp of approval for the Eleventh Five Year Plan document, which aims to achieve a ten per cent growth rate by the terminal year of the Plan period.
The document outlines the programmes and policies to be adopted by the Centre and states during the next four years, which should enable a nine per cent GDP growth on an average during the plan period (2011-2015).
The meeting already delayed by a year is being held in a hurry following concerns expressed by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on undue delay in its finalisation.
In his concluding remarks during the last National Development Council meeting in the capital on education, Dr Manmohan Singh had stated that the delay would show up in the performance of the programmes outlined in the National Common Minimum programme(NCMP).
The Full Plan Panel meeting is being held depite the fact that several Steering Committee and Working Group Reports relating to different sectors during the Eleventh Plan period have not been recieved.
