Published By : Admin | February 24, 2024 | 16:43 IST

"Today, every institution and every individual should move with a resolution that every effort and act will be for Viksit Bharat. The aim of your goals, your resolutions should be only one – Developed India".-PM Narendra Modi, At the launch of Viksit Bharat @2047: Voice of Youth.'

Viksit Bharat, or Developed India, is the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and represents a complete blueprint for the country's prosperity, not just a catchphrase. This vision will be a guiding principle for India during its Amrit Kaal. With a combination of social changes, technical innovations, and economic reforms, Prime Minister Modi hopes to raise India's position at the global level. This vision has many components, from economic growth to all-inclusive development and imbibing technological innovation.

A key objective of Viksit Bharat is to enable every citizen to participate in the economy. The economy that PM Modi envisions is strong, inclusive, and full of job and entrepreneurial opportunities. This entails implementing policies to encourage investment, advance economic growth, and foster innovation across various industries. The government's dedication to creating an environment favourable for business expansion and employment generation is demonstrated by the focus on programmes such as Made in India, Digital India, and Startup India. With the support of digitisation, homegrown manufacturing, and a thriving startup community, Prime Minister Modi hopes to raise millions out of poverty and realise the nation's full economic potential.

Another crucial component of Viksit Bharat's vision is to develop world-class infrastructure to promote sustainable growth and improve everyone's standard of living. To close infrastructure gaps around the country, the government is launching large-scale projects that range from constructing world-class roads, trains, and ports to increasing digital connection and updating urban infrastructure. Projects like the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana, Bharatmala, Sagarmala, and Smart Cities Mission highlight the government's commitment to building livable, sustainable cities, enhancing connectivity, and offering affordable housing to everybody. Vande Bharat trains, the UDAN initiative, has made the travel experience hassle-free for common citizens. Similarly, the expansion of metro trains has also ensured a smooth travel experience within cities. PM Modi wants to increase productivity, unleash economic potential, and raise the general standard of living through infrastructure investment.

Viksit Bharat prioritises inclusive development and social welfare to ensure everyone benefits from economic progress. The administration has launched several landmark initiatives to support disadvantaged populations, empower marginalised communities, and expand social security, healthcare, and education. Programmes such as Ayushman Bharat, Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao, and Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana indicate the government's dedication to enhancing healthcare, financial inclusion, gender parity, and sanitation. PM Modi wants to build a more inclusive and equal society where all people can prosper, and he accomplishes this by placing greater importance on social welfare. Initiatives such as Jan Aushandu Kendras were able to save 30,000 crore rupees for individuals from poor and middle-class families by providing medicines at an 80% discount rate.

Concerning environmental sustainability, Viksit Bharat aims to make India greener and cleaner. The government has started programmes to encourage renewable energy use, water conservation, and cleanliness, including the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan, Jal Jeevan Mission, and National Solar Mission. On a global level, PM Modi has endorsed sustainable development principles and the International Solar Alliance. The government aims to reduce environmental problems and create a sustainable future for future generations; thus, it supports conservation initiatives, climate-resilient infrastructure, and renewable energy. India is dedicated to upholding internationally acknowledged environmental standards and aims to achieve approximately fifty per cent of its installed electric power capacity from non-fossil fuel sources by 2030.

One of the key pillars of PM Modi's Viksit Bharat rests on harnessing technology to enhance efficiency and transparency in governance. Through platforms like Aadhaar and Direct Benefit Transfer (DBT), the government has streamlined the distribution of subsidies and welfare benefits, reduced leakages, and ensured that assistance reaches the intended beneficiaries directly. TDBT helped the government eliminate ten crore fraudulent entries and successfully curbed financial leakages. DBT has saved nearly 3 lakh crore rupees from falling into the wrong hands in the country. Additionally, schemes like Ayushman Bharat have utilised technology to create a digital health infrastructure, enabling citizens easy and hassle-free access to healthcare services. Overall, the government's emphasis on leveraging technology for welfare purposes underscores its commitment to inclusive development and empowerment of all citizens.

Inspired by PM Modi's vision of Viksit Bharat, India is making remarkable progress in every sector. Whether being the first nation to land on the moon's south pole or poised to become the world's third-largest economy, India is undeniably ascending on the path of development. The increasing cultural revival through programs such as the PRASHAD scheme and the Swadesh Darshan scheme ensures that Indian culture has garnered widespread popularity on the global stage.

PM Modi's vision of Viksit Bharat is based on an ambitious and groundbreaking plan to achieve India's full potential and propel the country to unprecedented development and prosperity. To establish a more resilient and inclusive society where Janbhagidari is the basis of the nation's success story. In addition, the government focuses on infrastructural development, social welfare, economic empowerment, and environmental sustainability.

PM Modi’s Vision Fuels Delhi’s Development
April 12, 2024

“Delhi has the good fortune to get an opportunity of keeping the flag of nations' prestige flying high.”
- PM Narendra Modi as Delhi prepared to host the G20 Summit

The last ten years of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s government have set in motion the creation of a New India—from rural to urban, from water to electricity, from houses to health, from education to employment, from castes to classes—a comprehensive plan bringing growth and prosperity to each doorstep.

The National Capital Territory of Delhi has emerged as a pivotal part of this dynamic developmental momentum spearheaded by PM Modi throughout this transformative decade.

The city has been at the heart of the infrastructural shift that has given a dedicated facelift to the entire nation. Today infrastructural marvels like Atal Setu, Chenab Bridge, Statue of Unity, and Zojila Tunnel dot India’s ever-evolving landscape.

With its focus on revamping transportation networks, upgrading urban amenities, and expanding digital infrastructure, the Modi government has launched an array of transformative initiatives. From railways, highways to airports, these initiatives have been key in galvanising inclusive and sustainable development across the length and breadth of the country.

The impressive expansion of the metro rail network has revolutionised urban commuting in India. From a mere 5 cities in 2014, the metro rail network now serves 21 cities across the nation—expanding from 248 km in 2014 to 945 km by 2024, with 919 km of lines under construction in 26 additional cities.

The Union Cabinet has recently approved two new corridors of Delhi Metro Phase-IV—Lajpat Nagar to Saket G-Block and Inderlok to Indraprastha. Both the lines have a combined length of over 20 kms with a project cost of over Rs. 8,000 crore (funding being sourced from the Union Govt, Govt of Delhi, and international agencies). The Inderlok- Indraprastha line will play a significant role in enhancing connectivity to the Bahadurgarh region of Haryana. Additionally, India’s first Namo Bharat train, operating on the Delhi-Meerut Regional Rapid Transit System (RRTS) corridor further underlines the Modi government’s commitment to enhancing regional connectivity and upgrading its transportation infrastructure.

Further, the Bharatmala Pariyojana envisages improved logistics efficiency and connectivity via the development of nearly 35,000 km of National Highway corridors. 25 greenfield high-speed corridors have been planned under the plan out of which four intersect with Delhi’s growing infra capacity: Delhi-Mumbai Expressway, Delhi-Amritsar-Katra Expressway, Delhi-Saharanpur-Dehradun Expressway, and the Urban Extension Road-II. The total project length sanctioned for Delhi is 203 km with an allocation of over Rs. 18,000 crore.

Over the past decade, the Modi government has consistently dedicated efforts towards augmenting capacity and decongestion of airports. After the IGI Airport Delhi became the first airport in the country to have four runways and an elevated taxiway, the expanded state-of-the-art Terminal 1 has also been inaugurated recently. In addition, the upcoming Noida International Airport (Jewar) shall further contribute to decongestion of the Delhi airport which is serving millions of passengers annually.

Besides, the inauguration of the New Parliament has further added civilisational yet modern connotations to the city’s landscape. Inauguration of the Yashobhoomi (India International Convention & Expo Centre) has given Delhi India’s largest convention and exhibition centre, offering a mixed purpose tourism experience. Along with Yashobhoomi, the Bharat Mandapam, a world-class convention and exhibition centre, showcases India to the world.

In terms of welfare, the Modi government has launched several schemes benefitting people hitherto on the margins of growth and development. Women’s safety in Delhi has been a key concern. To address the same, the Modi government strengthened the Criminal Law (Amendment) Act, 2013 by increasing the quantum of punishment for rape, including capital punishment for rape of a girlchild below the age of 12.

The Union Home Ministry established a separate Women Safety Division back in 2018. One-stop centers, Sakhi Niwas, Safe City Project, Nirbhaya Fund, SHe-Box, Investigation Tracking System for Sexual Offences, and Cri-MAC (Crime Multi-Agency Center) among others are significant additions in the government’s campaign towards women safety.

In addition, Swachh Bharat Mission, PM Ujjwala Yojana, PM Matru Vandana Yojana, and Beti Bachao Beti Padhao have further led to the empowerment of Nari Shakti in India.

As India becomes the 3rd largest startup ecosystem in the world, Delhi is also contributing significantly towards this development. Today over 13,000 DPIIT-recognised startups are functioning in Delhi even as the government is promoting self-employment through PM MUDRA Yojana with over 2.3 lakh loans sanctioned worth over Rs. 3,000 crore for FY2023-24 (as on 26.01.2024).

PM SVANidhi, which provides collateral free loans to street vendors, is supporting over 1.67 lakh beneficiaries in Delhi. Further, under the Aatmanirbhar Bharat Rozgar Yojana, launched in 2020 to incentivise employers for creation of new employment and restoration of loss of employment during Covid-19 pandemic, over 2.2 lakh employees benefitted in Delhi.

Further, nearly 30,000 houses have been sanctioned and completed in Delhi under PM Awas Yojana (Urban).

Air pollution has been a recurring problem for the people of Delhi. Conscious of this reality, the central government has launched the National Clean Air Programme as a national level strategy to reduce air pollution level across the country.

The Modi government's tenure over the last decade has brought about a remarkable transformation in Delhi across various fronts. From infrastructure development to governance reforms, from education to employment, the government's initiatives have left an indelible mark on the capital city. As Delhi continues on its journey of progress and development, the contributions of the Modi government are set to shape its future trajectory for years to come.
