The last meeting of the council was held on June 15, 2019, after PM Modi returned to power. However, no meeting could be held in 2020 because of the pandemic.
An official told ET that the council is likely to discuss the impact of Covid-19 pandemic on the global as well as Indian economy.
Issues related to water management and other bare necessities that states should focus are also likely to figure in discussions.
