Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday met chief ministers to hear their views on the restructuring of the Planning Commission.

Chief Ministers Mamata Banerjee of West Bengal and Omar Abdullah of Jammu and Kashmir are reportedly not attending the meeting taking place at the prime minister's residence.

Modi told parliament Friday that the government had consulted experts and economists in detail and also held discussions within the Planning Commission on its restructuring.

The Planning Commission was conceived by India's first prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru. It was formed March 15, 1950 -- and with it was born the Five-Year Plans.
