On 15th August 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the entire nation from the ramparts of Red Fort. In the next 25 years, he aims to reach the goal of ‘’Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas, Sabka Vishwas, Sabka Prayaas” by welcoming and encouraging an array of “ new thresholds, aspirations and dreams” of citizens. And on the other hand, solidifying the foundation for integrated infrastructure induced economic growth.
The PM Modi in its speech rolled out the Pradhan Mantri Gatishakti initiative, a 100 crore investment plan for its citizen. Hailing the initiative as a Master Plan, the government held the project as a major source of employment opportunities for young folks in the coming days.

The long arm of the project is to make India ‘Aatma Nirbhar’ and in the process increase the credibility of Indian brand value in the global market. Through this initiative, the government aims to motivate large and small scale manufacturers to produce quality worthy products for export, so that the market for export could be expanded in the coming days. Because for PM Narendra Modi the motto is “your goods are brand ambassadors for the country”.
Aim of the initiative:
- Generate more employment opportunities for youth
- Ensuring an all-round holistic development and growth of infrastructure
- Upskilling local manufactures so that they can compete on the global market
- Developing new possibilities like cutting edge innovation, new-age technology for future new economic zones
