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.

Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi participated in the first Outreach Session of the G7 Summit today.  

The session, titled ‘Building Back Stronger - Health’, focused on global recovery from the coronavirus pandemic and on strengthening resilience against future pandemics. 

During the session, Prime Minister expressed appreciation for the support extended by the G7 and other guest countries during the recent wave of COVID infections in India. 

He highlighted India's ‘whole of society’ approach to fight the pandemic, synergising the efforts of all levels of the government, industry and civil society.   

He also explained India’s successful use of open source digital tools for contact tracing and vaccine management, and conveyed India's willingness to share its experience and expertise with other developing countries.

Prime Minister committed India's support for collective endeavours to improve global health governance. He sought the G7's support for the proposal moved at the WTO by India and South Africa, for a TRIPS waiver on COVID related technologies. 

Prime Minister Modi said that today's meeting should send out a message of "One Earth One Health" for the whole world. Calling for global unity, leadership, and solidarity to prevent future pandemics, Prime Minister emphasized the special responsibility of democratic and transparent societies in this regard. 

PM will participate in the final day of the G7 Summit tomorrow and will speak in two Sessions.
