So I don’t think it’s a question of whether the time for the scheme had come or not. I think it was an idea, which even if politically supported, may not have been the best design scheme. Maybe if the UPA had won later, they would have to adjust the scheme because there would be political pressure or economic pressure to change it. My role in all of that was not to design the scheme but to provide information that you could use to make choices,” External link

Abhijit Banerjee said : “The right way to think about Nyay is that it is the opening step in creating an infrastructure for making money transfers possible rather than an entitlement for a particular good. It is better to give people cash than a fertiliser subsidy or free power. However, the first step has to be to convince people that the subsidy delivery mechanism works. This is what Nyay can do. So the major subsidy schemes cannot be removed before Nyay is well-established and in the short-run, there will definitely be some fiscal pressure,” External link
