Earlier, a parliamentary committee had recommended that the think tank be made an independent body and the ministry of planning be disbanded since it doesn't have much work.

The committee was chaired by M Veerappa Moily of the Congress party said "the time is opportune for NITI Aayog to comprehensively converge its respective mandate without losing focus on the objective for which it has been created."

The 12th report of the committee for the planning ministry said "in this context, the committee would recommend that NITI Aayog should be made an independent body while dismantling the ministry of planning as such, which is now left without any significant function or mandate."

The launch of the website was attended by its members Bibek Debroy and VK Saraswat  and CEO Sindhushree Khullar.
