2nd August, 1965 was the day when the first stone of the beautiful city of Gandhinagar was laid.

And the journey of the greenest capital which recently called as the Tree Captial of India had begun. With the passage of time specifically in past one decade, this planned city has become the most beautiful and exotic city of the state.

With the word Gandhinagar the first picture that comes into the mind is the green meadows, clean roads and the peace in the city. With 416 trees per 100 people the city gives the most purest and fresh air to breathe.

Gandhinagar has its development history in four phases out which the last phase which began from 2002 has the most innovative, and inclusive development plans. The state government aimed at a new, triple focus for the city:

a.)    It should be green

b.)    It should utilize solar energy

c.)    It should be cosmopolitan

Industrial, Educational, Religious, Tourist, Transportation each and every sector has progressed. The Infocity in Gandhinagar, an IT park project is strategically developed on a 24/7 work culture, on a principal location spread across 150 acres in the Greenest Capital City in the World. While the mega project of GIFT city (Gujarat International Finance-Tech City) has embarked to be devised as a global financial and IT services hub.

On the educational grounds PDPU, NID, NIFT, DA-IICT, GNLU (Gujarat National Law University), and BISAG (Bhaskaracharya Institute For Space Applications and Geo-Informatics)  located in Gandhinagar, are few of the domain specific and rarest institutes found in the nation. Moreover, since 2008 nationally renowned engineering institute IIT has its campus in Gandhinagar which recently provided its first, fresh batch of graduates.

Akshardham Temple

Coming on to the tourist destinations Swaminarayan temple - Akshardham,  Nature park - Indroda, are some of the tourist attractions in the city.

Mahatma Mandir – the dream project of Shri Narendra Modi. It is a convention cum exhibition centre with a capacity to accommodate 5000 people. An initiative by Government of Gujarat dedicated to the father of the nation has laid its foundation and it will develop to be one of the biggest attractions of the state.

Gandhinagar is connected by all means of transportation, while to add icing on the cake  Gujarat government has decided to start a Metrolink Express from Gandhinagar to Ahmedabad.

While a new Gandhinagar city is being planned with efforts of government the gap between Gandhinagar and Ahmedabad is about to close and in the coming years we will be celebrating the birthday of the New Gandhinagar city.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi today launched the Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission through a video conference.

Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that the campaign of strengthening health facilities that have been going for the last seven years is entering a new phase today. “Today we are launching a mission that has the potential of bringing a revolutionary change in India’s health facilities”, said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister underlined the fact that with 130 crore Aadhaar numbers, 118 crore mobile subscribers, about 80 crore internet users, about 43 crore Jan Dhan bank accounts, there is no such big connected infrastructure anywhere in the world. This digital infrastructure is bringing everything from ration to administration (Ration to Prashasan) to the common Indian in a fast and transparent manner. “The way technology is being deployed in governance reforms today is unprecedented”, said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister remarked that the Arogya Setu app helped a lot in preventing the spread of corona infection. He lauded Co-WIN for its role in making India achieve a record administration of about 90 crore vaccine doses today, under the free vaccine campaign.

Continuing with the theme of the use of technology in health, the Prime Minister said that there has also been an unprecedented expansion of telemedicine during the Corona period, so far about 125 crores, remote consultations have been completed through e-Sanjeevani. This facility is connecting thousands of countrymen living in far-flung parts of the country every day with doctors of big hospitals of cities while sitting at home, said the Prime Minister.

The Prime Minister remarked that Ayushman Bharat-PMJAY has addressed a key headache in the lives of the poor. So far more than 2 crore countrymen have availed the facility of free treatment under this scheme, half of which are women. The Prime Minister emphasized that diseases are one of the key reasons to push families into the vicious cycle of poverty and women of the families are the worst sufferers as they always relegate their health issues to the background. Shri Modi said that he has made it a point to personally meet some beneficiaries of Ayushman and he has experienced the benefits of the scheme during the interactions. He said, “these healthcare solutions are a big investment in the present and future of the country.”

The Prime Minister said Ayushman Bharat – Digital Mission, will now connect the digital health solutions of hospitals across the country with each other. The Mission will not only make the processes of hospitals simplified but also will increase ease of living, he added. Under this, every citizen will now get a digital health ID and their health record will be digitally protected.

The Prime Minister informed that India is working on a health model that is holistic and inclusive. A model which stresses preventive healthcare and, in case of disease, easy, affordable and accessible treatment. He also discussed unprecedented reforms in health education and said a much larger number of doctors and par medical manpower is being created in India now as compared to 7-8 years ago. A comprehensive network of AIIMS and other modern health institutions is being established in the country and work on establishing one medical college in every three Lok Sabha constituencies is going on. He also talked about strengthening health facilities in villages and informed that in the villages, primary health centre networks and wellness centres are being strengthened. More than 80 thousand such centres have already been operationalized, said the Prime Minister.

Noting that today's program is being organized on World Tourism Day, the Prime Minister remarked that health has a very strong relationship with tourism. Because when our health infrastructure is integrated, strengthened, it also improves the tourism sector.
