The Skoch Challenger Awards are the highest independently instituted civilian honours. The Commerce and Industry Minister was awarded for his contribution to reforms, particularly in the power sector reforms.

Speaking at the inaugural session of the Summit, Chairman, Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister, Dr Bibek Debroy said level of per capita income is an important indicator of growth and progress of the country.

He said economics cannot be delinked from government structures and Constitution as most of the public goods and services are delivered by local governments. He said there is a need for greater debate and discussion about decentralisation, state government budgets and finance commissions.
