T.N. renames development policy council

The Tamil Nadu government on Wednesday renamed the State Development Policy Council as the State Planning Commission.

The government issued an order making the change with immediate effect. In 2020, consequent to the abolition of plan, non-plan distinction, orders were issued replacing the State Planning Commission, which was constituted in 1971, with the State Development Policy Council (SDPC).
