NITI Aayog’s first meeting held on February 8, 2015, while months later on July 15, the second meeting of the council took place.

While the PM Modi headed its third meeting on April 23, 2017. It was during the third meeting when the PM Modi discussed the idea of conducting elections of the Lok Sabha and the state assemblies together.

While the last meeting that was held a year ago on June 17, 2018, discussed the measures taken to double farmers’ income.
