India has a rich tradition of trade and commerce. Our traders continue to make a strong contribution to India’s economic growth.

In a decision that will benefit the trading community, the Union Cabinet, chaired by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has approved a new scheme that offers pension coverage to the trading community. This is a part of the Prime Minister’s vision to provide a robust architecture of universal social security.

How the scheme works:

Under this scheme  all shopkeepers, retail traders and self-employed persons are assured a minimum monthly pension of Rs. 3,000/- month after attaining the age of 60 years.  

All small shopkeepers and self-employed persons as well as the retail traders with GST turnover below Rs. 1.5 crore and age between 18-40 years, can enrol for this scheme.  The scheme would benefit more than 3 crore small shopkeepers and traders.

The scheme is based on self-declaration as no documents are required except Aadhaar and bank account. Interested persons can enrol themselves through more than 3,25,000 Common Service Centres spread across the country.  

The Government of India will make matching contribution in the subscribers’ account.  For example if a person with age of 29 years contributes Rs. 100/- month, then the Central Government also contributes the equal amount as subsidy into subscriber’s pension account every month.

Delivering a major promise on Day 1:

By imitating a pension architecture for the trading community, the Prime Minister and his team have fulfilled a major promise made to the people of India. Shri Modi had spoken about the need of proving pension for traders, that would assure them a life of dignity and financial security especially when during their old age.

This decision can also be seen in the light of several other steps taken for the welfare of traders, small and medium business. The GST underwent significant simplification after taking feedback of the trading community. In the same way, Mudra loans gave wings to the entrepreneurial zeal of young India. Loans upto Rs. 1 crore are now easily available.

These, any many more efforts would help the trading community.

I am a sevak, have come here to give account of BJP's achievements before people of Jharkhand, says PM Modi in Dumka
Opposition built palaces for themselves and their families when in power; they are not worried about people’s troubles: PM Modi in Jharkhand
Congress, allies have raised storm over citizenship law, they are behind unrest and arson: PM Modi in Dumka

The campaigning in Jharkhand has gained momentum as Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi addressed a mega rally in Dumka today. Accusing Congress and the JMM, PM Modi said, “They do not have any roadmap for development of Jharkhand, nor do they have done anything in the past. But we understand your problems and work towards solving them.”

Hitting out at the opposition parties, he said, “The ones whom people of Jharkhand had trusted just worked for their own good. Those people had to be punished by you, but they are still not reformed. They have just been filling their treasury.”

Talking about the Citizenship Amendment Act, PM Modi said that to give respect to the minority communities from Pakistan, Afghanistan, & Bangladesh, who fled to India & were forced to live as refugees, both houses of parliament passed the Citizenship Amendment bill. “Congress and their allies are creating a ruckus. They are doing arson because they did not get their way. Those who are creating violence can be identified by their clothes itself. The work that has been done on Pakistan's money is now being done by Congress,” he said.

The Prime Minister outlined the progress and development successes of the Jharkhand. He said, “Before 2014, the Chief Minister of the state used to claim the construction of 30-35 thousand houses and described it as their achievement. But now we are moving forward with the resolve that every poor person in the country should have their own house.”

Addressing a poll meeting in Dumka, PM Modi said, "The BJP governments at the Centre and the state would continue to protect Jharkhand's 'jal', 'jungle' and 'jameen', no matter what the opposition parties say."

“In Jharkhand, the institutes of higher education, engineering and medical studies like IIT, AIIMS were opened, this is also done by BJP,” asserted PM Modi in Jharkhand's Dumka district. Also, the PM urged citizens of Jharkhand to come out and vote in large numbers.
