Planning Commission launches India Backbone Implementation Network
The India Backbone Implementation Network (IBIN) was launched by the Deputy Chairman of the Planning Commission, Montek Singh Ahluwalia recently. The purpose of IBIN is to improve implementation of policies, programmes, and projects, which the 12th Five Year Plan has located as the critical necessity for accelerating more inclusive and faster growth.
IBIN has been modeled on the Total Quality Movement (TQM) in Japan which in the 1960s and 70s transformed the capability of Japanese organisations. The IBIN movement will disseminate techniques and skills for collaboration, coordination, and better planning through a network of agencies in the country. The current partners in the expanding network are: A?Administrative Staff College of India, Indian School of Business, SEWA, WISCOMP, UNDP, GIZ, World Bank, Federation of Indian Micro and Small & Medium Enterprises (FISME) and other business associations.
At the launch, Arun Maira, Member, Planning Commission, thanked India@75 for partnering with the commission to launch A?IBIN. India@75 is a path breaking initiative, which envisions how India should be in her 75th year of independence. It seeks to bring together all stakeholders including the industry, government, institutions, community groups and individuals to translate the vision into a reality.
