In a major announcement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday said that the government has chose to end the practice of ministers recommending name for Padma awards.

Trump spoke with Modi last night to greet him on the eve of India's Independence Day.

Modi hailed his government efforts in recent months to cut graft, including the surprise decision to withdraw large currency notes and an overhaul of taxes on goods and services that he said had brought billions of dollars of unaccounted money into the mainstream economy.

Under the Champions Of Change programme organised by Niti Aayog, 212 young entrepreneurs were grouped into six sectoral themes - Soft Power: Incredible India 2.0; Education and Skill Development; Health and Nutrition; Energizing a sustainable tomorrow; and Digital India; New India by 2022.

"Modi wished for the event to be held every year so that young bunch of entrepreneurs go parallel with the government to deal with different issues by suggesting intelligent solutions".

"The US is proud to stand with the people of India, the world s largest democracy, in the cause for freedom and prosperity around the globe", he said.

The average age of the 180 young CEOs, expected to interact with the PM and other top government officials and ministers on August 21 and 22, is just 40-42 years, the official said.

The new changes mark a shift from the previous U.S. administration's policies and will seek to improve upon the existing dialogue format between the commerce and foreign ministers of India and the United States, started by the Barack Obama administration. "But even if 10 are implemented, it will be a valuable contribution", he said.

The Prime Minister also expressed regret that corruption had been institutionalised in India and said the government can not stop it without making counter-institutional arrangements.

He added that he wanted to create an annual institutional mechanism for implementation of the ideas emerging from this event and also to come up with new ideas.

"Policy makers in Government are relatively senior.the group I am meeting today is young".
