'Nyay' scheme poses 'fiscal challenge' to India's economy, says former NITI Aayog vice chairman Arvind Panagariya

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday said that its minimum income guarantee scheme, Nyuntam Aay Yojana (Nyay) assures up to Rs 72,000 a year or Rs 6,000 a month income to 20 per cent of India's poorest families if the party is voted back to power in the Lok Sabha elections next month.
Panagariya, who served as the first vice chairman of NITI Aayog for two years from 2015 to 2017, told PTI that 'Nyay' is difficult to implement and unlikely to achieve its intended objective.
