Planning Commission member says such institutes are required to ‘improve productivity and outcomes for the products and services offered including governance’

The government intends to set up several design institutes across the country, a member of the Planning Commission announced at the CII Global Strategic Design Summit 2013.

Arun Maira was speaking at the function in Mumbai on the theme of 'Design as Strategy to Steer Through Turbulence'.

He added that such institutes are required to "improve productivity and outcomes for the products and services offered including governance".

"Money invested in public expenditure is not giving desired results due to flaws in design. Designing solutions with engagement of implementation agencies is the key for the future," he added.

Maira said the country’s governance is flawed, and called for public participation to make sure that governance architecture is more local than centralized, reported a leading daily.

The right designing of governance will facilitate directing funds towards result oriented schemes, he said.

The Planning Commission member also said there is lack of coordination within ministries to support the overlapping schemes within the government. Citing an example, he said that despite spending a lot of money, India is doing worse than Bangladesh and sub-Saharan Africa when it comes to malnutrition.
