The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, has commended bank officers and staff, on the excellent work put in by them in rolling out the Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojana successfully. 

In an email, the Prime Minister said he is delighted by the unprecedented response it has received so far. Over 5 crore bank accounts have been opened within 5 weeks of launch against a target of 7.5 crore accounts in the first year. 

"This is primarily due to your diligence and commitment. I had urged you to ensure that no one is left behind without a bank account. I always had faith in the ability of our system to rise to any challenge and with your unflinching dedication, sense of purpose and hard work, your results have far exceeded expectations," the Prime Minister said. 

"However, as we move ahead from here, the journey is bound to become more difficult and achievements harder to come by. Reaching the last few who do not have bank accounts is going to be progressively more difficult. We must not slacken our efforts in ensuring full coverage," the Prime Minister added. 

"This is also the time to reflect and make mid-course corrections as required. A lot of effort will be required in promoting financial literacy amongst the new account holders. New accounts also need to be kept alive and properly utilized. Aadhaar numbers will need to be seeded in bank accounts. Facilities like e-KYC must be gainfully utilized. Bank branches and Bank Mitras will have to play a more proactive role so that every account holder is reached by a banking agent regularly," the Prime Minister said. 

"I am confident that with the kind of enthusiasm and commitment that you have demonstrated, we will succeed in achieving Pradhan Mantri Jan-Dhan Yojana’s objectives as planned," the Prime Minister said.

PM lauds role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has saluted each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive on completion of 1 year of vaccine drive. The Prime Minister has lauded the role of doctors, nurses and healthcare workers for vaccination drive. He also said that India's vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19.

In response to a tweet by MyGovIndia, the Prime Minister, in a series of tweets said;

"Today we mark #1YearOfVaccineDrive.

I salute each and every individual who is associated with the vaccination drive.

Our vaccination programme has added great strength to the fight against COVID-19. It has led to saving lives and thus protecting livelihoods.

At the same time, the role of our doctors, nurses and healthcare workers is exceptional. When we see glimpses of people being vaccinated in remote areas, or our healthcare workers taking the vaccines there, our hearts and minds are filled with pride.

India’s approach to fighting the pandemic will always remain science based. We are also augmenting health infrastructure to ensure our fellow citizens get proper care.

Let us keep following all COVID-19 related protocols and overcome the pandemic."
