"In the case of the cabinet committee on UIDAI, major decisions have already been taken and the remaining issues will be brought to the cabinet committee on economic affairs."
New Delhi, June 10 - In what is being seen as Narendra Modi's attempt at minimum government, maximum governance and a departure from the erstwhile Congress-led government's power structure, the prime minister Tuesday dissolved four cabinet committees.

These are the cabinet committee on management of natural calamities, cabinet committee on prices, cabinet committee on World Trade Organisation (WTO) matters and cabinet committee on Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI), the Prime Minister's Office said in a statement.

The cabinet secretary will now look into matters related to natural calamities, which was earlier done by the cabinet committee on management of natural calamities.

The functions of the cabinet committee on prices will now be discharged by the cabinet committee on economic affairs, the PMO statement said.

Matters relating to the WTO will now be supervised by the cabinet committee on economic affairs and, whenever necessary, by the full cabinet.

In the case of the cabinet committee on UIDAI, major decisions have already been taken and the remaining issues will be brought to the cabinet committee on economic affairs.

Modi will be re-constituting the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet, the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, the Cabinet Committee on Parliamentary Affairs, the Cabinet Committee on Political Affairs and the Cabinet Committee on Security, the statement said.
