Read the highlights of PM Modi's address: -
Congratulations to the team of Madhya Pradesh and Shivraj Ji. With his efforts, more than 1 lakh street vendors - street vendors in Madhya Pradesh have been benefited from the Swanidhi scheme in just 2 months time.
The purpose of this scheme is that those people can start afresh, they can start their work again so that they get easy capital. This is also the first time that the network of millions of street vendors has been truly connected to the system, they have got an identity.
This is a scheme in which you can also get complete freedom from interest. Under this scheme, interest rebate of up to 7 percent is being given anyway. But if you take care of some small things, then you will not have to give this also.
A new beginning has been made in collaboration with banks and digital payment facilitators to ensure that our street vendors do not lag behind in digital shopkeeping. Now the representatives of banks and institutions will come to your street, cart, and give QR code. They will also tell you how to use it.
Whether the hawkers or the hawkers have a gas connection to Ujjwala, whether their home has an electricity connection or not, whether they are connected with the Ayushman Bharat scheme or not, whether they are getting the benefit of the insurance scheme or not Whether or not you have your own roof, all these things will be seen.
There has been a lot of talk of the poor in our country, but the work done for the poor in the last 6 years has never been done before. Every sector, every sector where the poor-afflicted-exploited-deprived were in scarcity, the government's plans came as its enabler.
Recently, the government has also started a big scheme to provide better accommodation in cities at reasonable rent to colleagues like you. If you go anywhere in the country with the convenience of one country, one ration card, then you will be able to get a cheaper ration of your share.
