The Mahamilwati parties are rattled seeing the support for the BJP in UP: PM Modi
The people of Uttar Pradesh do not stand with divisive parties who engage in appeasement and votebank politics: PM Modi in UP
We follow a ‘no-tolerance’ policy against terrorists unlike the Congress and its allies who were famous for their soft approach on terrorism and its sympathisers: Prime Minister Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed major rallies in Etah and Bareilly in Uttar Pradesh today.

Lashing out at the regional SP-BSP alliance for being an opportunist coalition, PM Modi said, “The Mahamilwati parties are rattled seeing the support for the BJP here. Your support has unnerved the selfish alliance of SP-BSP. These people have come together despite being old foes only because of their hunger for power, all they want is to remove Modi and then continue unabated with their unending corruption and scams. This is why, these parties have lost their ground among the people of Uttar Pradesh.”

Questioning the Congress-led governments for their soft approach towards India’s national security issues, Prime Minister Modi said, “The people of Uttar Pradesh do not stand with divisive parties who engage in appeasement and votebank politics, rather the people of Uttar Pradesh stand firmly with a strong government that works beyond the boundaries of caste and religion. Everybody has seen how this strong government responded back to terrorists in their own language when India was attacked in any way. We follow a ‘no-tolerance’ policy against terrorists unlike the Congress and its allies who were famous for their soft approach on terrorism and its sympathisers.”

 

Describing how several major decisions and schemes of this government were transforming the lives of the poor people in Uttar Pradesh, PM Modi said, “Through the PM-KISAN Yojana, the farmers of Uttar Pradesh have been fast moving towards greater financial security while Ayushman Bharat Yojana is transforming the way the health of poor people is treated by providing them with world-class medical treatments free of cost. With the Saubhagya Yojana, we have provided free electricity connections to the remotest corners of the country and are rapidly moving towards electrifying every household in the country. All such historic steps have been taken because the people decided to vote for and elect a strong, stable and transparent government in 2014. In order to keep this story of growth and development moving at rapid pace, I appeal to my voters and supporters in UP to stand firmly in support of the BJP and give this strong government another chance at taking even more historic decisions to improve the lives of the people at an unprecedented scale.”

Excellencies,

Distinguished colleagues,

My fellow citizens from the Tech and Finance world, Tens of thousands of Participants from over 70 countries,

Namaskar!

Friends,

I am delighted to inaugurate the first 'Infinity Forum' and welcome you all. 'Infinity Forum' represents the immense possibilities that Fintech has in India. It also shows the huge potential for India's Fintech to provide benefits to the entire world.

Friends,

The history of currency shows tremendous evolution. As humans evolved, so did the form of our transactions. From barter system to metals, from coins to notes, from cheques to cards, today we have reached here. Earlier developments used to take decades to spread across the world but not any more in this era of globalisation .Technology is bringing a big shift in the world of finance. Last year, in India, mobile payments exceeded ATM cash withdrawals for the first time. Fully digital banks, without any physical branch offices, are already a reality and may become common-place in less than a decade.

Friends,

India has proved to the world that it is second to none when it comes to adopting technology or innovating around it. Transformational initiatives under Digital India have opened doors for Fintech innovations to be applied in governance. Technology has also catalyzed financial inclusion. From less than 50% Indians having bank accounts in 2014, we have almost universalized it with 430 million Jan Dhan accounts in the last 7 years. So far, 690 million RuPay cards have been issued. RuPay cards clocked 1.3 billion transactions last year. UPI processed around 4.2 billion transactions in just last month.

Almost 300 million invoices are uploaded on the GST portal every month. More than 12 billion US dollars worth payment is done through the GST portal alone every month. Despite the pandemic, about 1.5 million railway tickets get booked online everyday. Last year, FASTag processed 1.3 billion seamless transactions. PM Svanidhi is enabling access to credit for small vendors across the country. e-RUPI has enabled targeted delivery of specified services without leakages; I can go on and on, but these are just a few examples of the scale & scope of Fintech in India.

Friends,

Financial inclusion is the driver of Fintech Revolution. Fintech is resting on 4 pillars; income, investments, insurance, and institutional credit. When income grows, investment becomes possible. Insurance coverage enables greater risk taking ability and investments. Institutional credit gives wings for expansion. And we have worked on each of these pillars. When all these factors come together, you suddenly find so many more people participating in the financial sector. The large base becomes the perfect springboard for Fintech innovations. Fintech industry in India is innovating to enhance access to finance and the formal credit system to every person in the country. Now it is time to convert these fintech initiatives into a fintech revolution. A revolution that helps to achieve financial empowerment of every single citizen of the country.

Friends,

As we see the widening reach of fintech, there are considerations that need attention. Fintech industry has achieved huge scale, and scale means people from all walks of life as customers. This fintech acceptability among the masses has a unique feature. That feature is trust. The common Indian has shown immense trust in our Fintech ecosystem by embracing digital payments and such technologies! This trust is a responsibility. Trust means that you need to ensure that the interests of people are secured. Fintech innovation will be incomplete without fintech security innovation.

Friends,

We believe in sharing our experiences and expertise with the world and learning from them as well. Our Digital Public Infrastructure solutions can improve the lives of people around the world. Tools like UPI and RuPay provide an unparalleled opportunity for every country. An opportunity to provide a low cost and reliable 'real time payment system' as well as a 'domestic card scheme' and 'fund remittance system'.

Friends,

GIFT City is not merely a premise, It represents the promise of India. It represents India's democratic values, demand, demography & diversity. It represents India's openness to ideas, innovation & investment. GIFT City is a gateway to the global fintech world. (IFSC) at GIFT City was born out of the vision that finance combined with technology would be an important part of India's future development. Our aim is to provide the best International Financial Services not just for India but for the World.

Friends,

Finance is the life blood of an economy and technology is its carrier. Both are equally important for achieving ''Antyodaya and Sarvodaya''. Our flagship Infinity Forum is part of our endeavor to bring together all key stakeholders of the global Fintech Industry to explore the limitless future of the industry. I remember the conversation I had with Mr Mike Bloomberg on this subject when we last met. And I thank the Bloomberg group for their support. Infinity forum is a forum of belief, belief in the spirit of innovation and the power of imagination. Belief in the energy of youth and their passion for change. Belief in making the world a better place. Let us together, explore and advance innovative ideas in Fintech to solve the most pressing issues emerging globally.

Thank You!
