The Finance Minister will soon appraise 10 key ministries for their performance during the first 100 days of the Government.

“The aim of this exercise is to see how the allocated money has been spent and what are the key initiatives that Ministries have taken,” a senior Government official said. Accordingly, a ranking will be released by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley. Apart from this, various Ministries will also make public the initiatives taken by them during the first 100 days of the new Government.

Narendra Modi was sworn in three months ago, on May 26

On May 29, three days after becoming Prime Minister, Narendra Modi had directed all his Cabinet Ministers to prepare an agenda for the first 100 days. Each of them was asked to prepare the timetable and fix their priorities for the first 100 days. This was communicated to Ministers at the Cabinet meeting.

Briefing reporters after the meeting, Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu quoted Modi on the ‘most important’ aspects that had to be focussed on. These were efficient governance, delivery and implementation of schemes and programmes. The Prime Minister had charged the new Government with taking forward the issues pending from the UPA’s term on priority basis.
