The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, will attend an event to mark World Biofuel Day, at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on August 10, 2018.
 
He will address a diverse gathering, consisting of farmers, scientists, entrepreneurs, students, government officials, and legislators.
 
Biofuels can help reduce import dependency on crude oil. They can contribute to a cleaner environment, generate additional income for farmers, and generate employment in rural areas.  Therefore, biofuels have synergies with various Government initiatives, including enhancing farmers’ incomes, and Swachh Bharat.
 
As a result of the efforts of the Union Government, ethanol blending in petrol has increased from 38 crore litres in the ethanol supply year 2013-14, to an estimated 141 crore litres in the ethanol supply year 2017-18.  The Government also approved the National Policy on Biofuels in June 2018.

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, today chaired a high-level meeting to review progress with regard to "Ease of Doing Business."

The meeting was attended by senior Union Ministers related to economic matters; Maharashtra Chief Minister Shri Devendra Fadnavis; Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Shri Anil Baijal; and senior officials from the Union Government, Maharashtra Government and Delhi Government.  

The Prime Minister was briefed on progress being made on various parameters related to Ease of Doing Business. Subjects such as construction permits, enforcement of contracts, registering property, starting a business, getting electricity, getting credit, and resolving insolvency came up for discussion.  

India’s rise in the World Bank “Doing Business” rankings from 142 to 77, over the last four years, was taken note of. 

Officials explained the steps being taken to plug shortcomings and resolve bottlenecks in implementing business reforms.  

The Prime Minister stressed on the need to improve last mile delivery, and focus on streamlining procedures, which would  improve not just the "Doing Business" rankings, but also increase the "Ease of Living" for small businesses and the common man. He said this is extremely important for India, as an emerging and vibrant economy. He also spoke of the tremendous global interest about the rise in India's "Doing Business" rankings.
