PM Modi Launches PM-SURAJ National Portal

Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the ‘Pradhan Mantri Samajik Utthan Evam Rozgar Adharit Jankalyan’ (PM-SURAJ) national portal on Wednesday and sanctioned credit assistance for one lakh entrepreneurs from disadvantaged communities. He also interacted with beneficiaries of various government schemes from disadvantaged groups, including Scheduled Castes, Backward Classes and sanitation workers through video conferencing. PM-SURAJ national portal for credit support to disadvantaged sections embodies the Prime Minister’s commitment to prioritize the underprivileged. It is a transformative initiative, aimed at uplifting the most marginalised segments of society. The program witnessed the participation of about three lakh beneficiaries of various government schemes from disadvantaged groups who joined the program from over 470 districts across the country.

Addressing the programme marking nationwide outreach for credit support to disadvantaged sections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that this occasion provides a glimpse of the Government’s commitment to prioritise the underprivileged. Mentioning transferring financial assistance worth 720 crore rupees directly into the bank accounts of one lakh beneficiaries of the disadvantaged sections, Mr Modi said that such a system of Direct Benefit Transfer was unimaginable during the previous governments. Referring to his interaction with the beneficiaries, the Prime Minister expressed satisfaction with how the welfare schemes are reaching the Dalits, deprived and backward communities. Mr Modi said that this makes him emotional as he is not separate from them and he sees in them his family.
