Thousands gathered on the ground, millions tuned in their television sets and billions willing themselves into the hysteria of the obedience that was left behind for the generations; only when a person dressed in a white Kurta and a jacket speaks. “Modi-Modi-Modi,” shouts the massed entrepreneurs, engineers, doctors, farmers and a common man once forgotten. Such is the charisma of this man. He is no one other than, Narendra Modi, the 15th Prime Minister of the world’s largest democracy, India.
“Ab ki Bar Modi Sarkaar” sailed through the imaginations as Narendra Modi raised huge expectations of “Ache Din” among the electorates. Modi government has taken some massive steps since the time he met President Pranab Mukherjee to present his claim to be the Prime Minister. Here we at CashKaro look at the major decisions that were taken by the Modi Government.
Jan-Dhan Yojana: Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana was the first big ticket social welfare programme launched by the Prime Minister, Modi. This Yojana aims at opening at least one bank account for every family in the country in less than six months. The Yojana provides the opportunity to open a free zero balance account with a debit card along with Rs.1 lakh accidental insurance policy and Rs.30, 000 free medical insurance cover. Nearly 6 crore bank accounts have been opened with a deposit of more than Rs.4, 5 00 crores till date.
Make-in-India: Prime Minister launched his flagship campaign “Make-in-India” to put the country on a global manufacturing map turning the flow of investments and innovations while creating millions of jobs.
“This is the step of a lion. FDI is not just Foreign Direct Investment but for me, it also stands for First Develop India .Come, Make in India,” said Mr.Modi.
Prime Minister laid down the red carpet for the investors to invest in various sectors varying from automobiles to aviation, chemicals to constructions, roads to railways, and defense to space etc. Various steps like removal of foreign equity caps, timely addressal of logistics and systems, ease in policy reforms and single taxations have already been taken under this campaign.
Swachh Bharat Abhiyan: It is India’s biggest cleanliness drive since independence initiated by the Prime Minister on the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Swachh Bharat Abhiyan is a nation-wide campaign which covers 4041 towns and cities across India to clean the streets, roads and infrastructures. Prime Minister stressed the importance of sanitation and has asked citizens to actively participate to clean their mother land.
“We have to clean India by 2019 when the entire nation celebrates the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi,” as said by the Prime Minister.
Shramev Jayate: Looking to create a favourable environment for industrial development while ensuring transparency, the Prime Minister launched India’s much awaited labour reforms, Shramev Jayate. It ended the colonial era’s “Inspector Raj” and placed in a system with a single window compliance process. All 1,800 labour inspectors are now disallowed from swooping down on companies.
“Let us start trusting our people and ease of business is the first requirement if Make In India has to be made successful,” said Modi.
He launched Shram Suvidha Portal which allows employers to submit a single compliance report for all 16 labour laws. A new web based inspection system and a unique account number for the member of EPFO was also initiated.
Sansad Adarsh Gram Yojana: It is a rural development and cleanliness programme which broadly focuses upon the overall development of Indian villages. Under this scheme, each MP will adopt a village every year for all round development using the Centre and States programmes aided by his constituency development funds.
India First- Videsh Neeti: Prime Minister brought adventurism to the silent foreign policy of India. The importance of the outreach was to invite the heads of the SAARC countries for the swearing-in ceremony of the Prime Minister. It was a significant change in India’s approach to reset his priorities by actively engaging regional players. The cancellation of foreign minister level talks over Pakistan’s engagement with separatist was indeed a bold move.
Defence forces were given a free hand to give a befitting reply to the recent cease fire violations by Pakistan. On the eastern front, Modi displayed warmth during his visit to Nepal and Bhutan. Adventurism was taken to new heights when India was signing oil exploration treaty with Vietnam on disputed South China Sea at the same time, when Chinese President Xi Jinping was touring India. Narendra Modi’s historic visit to America and Japan, fabulous speech in Hindi at the UN General Assembly added new chapters in our foreign policy.
Steps like decommissioning of the 50 year old Planning Commission, creating a separate ministry for Ganga’s rejuvenation, development of 300 smart cities, studying the feasibility of bullet trains, raising FDI caps into defence and insurance sector, tuning in the entire bureaucracy are some of the signature steps taken by the Narendra Modi Government. While the entire nation was celebrating Diwali with their family, Prime Minister Modi lightened Diwali lamps in the hills of Siachen with our soldiers.
He follows a dictionary which has no word called disappointment, he executes and then speaks, he works for 16 hours a day, he is super active on social media and from his team ,he always wants to hear, YES ! MR PRIME MINISTER.
