Modi abolishes ministerial groups
Modi took the decision to empower the Ministries and Departments.
"In a major move to empower the Ministries and Departments, the Prime Minister today decided to abolish all the existing nine Empowered Group of Ministers (EGoMs) and twenty-one Groups of Ministers (GoMs). This would expedite the process of decision making and usher in greater accountability in the system," the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said in a statement.
"The Ministries and Departments will now process the issues pending before the EGoMs and GoMs and take appropriate decisions at the level of Ministries and Departments itself," read the statement.
"Wherever the Ministries face any difficulties, the Cabinet Secretariat and the Prime Minister’s Office will facilitate the decision making process," it said.
Modi took oath as the PM of the country on Monday.
