New Delhi: Government think tank Niti Aayog has envisaged a New India by 2022 which will be free from poverty, dirt, corruption, terrorism, casteism and communalism.

India will be in the top three economies of the world if it continues to grow at 8% from now until 2047, according to New India@2022 document presented by Niti Aayog Vice Chairman Rajiv Kumar at Conference of Governors last month.

The document visualises that government will be able to connect all villages with habitations over 500 (250 in Special Areas) with all-weather roads by 2019 under Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana (PMGSY).

It further envisions that India will have 20 world-class higher education institutions by 2022.
