Explanation:

Statement 1 is incorrect. The National Development Council (NDC) was indeed an advisory body to the Planning Commission, and it provided a platform for discussion and coordination between the central and state governments. The Planning Commission would present its plans before the NDC for approval or acceptance. However, both the NDC and Planning Commission have been abolished now.

Statement 2 is correct. The subject of Economic and Social Planning is kept in the Concurrent List in the Constitution of India. This means that both the central and state governments have the authority to make laws and policies regarding economic and social planning.

Statement 3 is correct. The Constitution of India, through the 73rd Amendment Act, assigned the task of preparation of plans for economic development and social justice to the Panchayats. The amendment introduced Part IX to the constitution, which includes provisions for the establishment and functioning of Panchayats, and the Eleventh Schedule, which lists 29 subjects within the functions of the Panchayats.
