This is Modi's third meeting with the chief ministers after the BJP swept to power in 2014, but the first such exercise since it formed a government in Bihar by joining hands with the JD(U).
Ahead of the meeting, the respective states had been asked to send in details to the central office on the progress made in various developmental works, both under central and state-sponsored schemes.
Some chief ministers have also been asked to make brief presentations on their flagship schemes which can be tweaked and implemented in other states as well.
