Kolkata: Global body - Project Management Institute (PMI) on Saturday said that it was lobbying with Niti Aayog to recognise the role of project management professionals in executing any government projects.

"We are talking to Niti Aayog for involving project management professionals in government projects," PMI India managing director Raj Kalady told PTI.
