About 2-3 years before the implementation of the National Plan, the discussions on the targets and programs of the plan begins. The Planning Commission collects the data of the national product, national consumption, availability of resources, national investment and saving for the future plan and it prepares micro and macro plans, keeping in view their allocation arrangements. Thereafter, national plans along with the data sent to the National Development Council. The NDC again sends it back to Planning Commission with or without any amendment. On this basis, the ministries of Center and State Governments are asked to prepare their projects. The Planning Commission obtains suggestion from a panel of experts operating in various sectors. On the basis of the requisites of the plan obtained from different ministries and opinion of the different specialists, the Planning Commission prepares a draft memorandum of the plan, in which all the policies and important details of the plan are laid down. This draft memorandum is sent to the central cabinet for discussion. After the assessment, the central cabinet sends it to National Development Council along with its suggestions. The NDC again sends it to Planning Commission with its suggestions.
