Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Tuesday chaired the governing council meeting of the National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF).
The NIIF is a fund manager that invests in infrastructure and related sectors in the country.
"Finance Minister Smt. @nsitharaman chaired the Governing Council meeting of National Investment and Infrastructure Fund (NIIF) in North Block today. Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs Shri @ianuragthakur was also present," the finance ministry said in a tweet on Tuesday.
