Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
Modi Ji made a special place in everyone's Mann by sharing his 'Mann ki baat' with Indians which is pretty much what our Mann Ki Baat is as well on most of the occasions.
While addressing the population for the last time with Mann Ki Baat this year, our PM made some very exciting announcements for buyers and sellers both.
The government is working Day and night to make India work on minimum cash. Again, it isn't cashless, it is less cash. They are promoting online means of transactions in every way possible.
With an eye on cashless economy, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday unveiled two schemes – Lucky Grahak Yojana and Digi Dhan Vyapaar Yojana – for customers and traders alike to promote mobile banking and e-payments. He spoke about them in detail.
Keep reading ahead to know what these schemes are.
In his speech, Modi said, “To encourage this trend, strengthen mobile banking and inculcate the habit of making e-payments, the government is launching from today encouragement schemes for consumers as well as traders. To encourage customers, the scheme is Lucky Grahak Yojana and to encourage traders, the scheme is Digi Dhan Vyapaar Yojana.”
In order to generate interest amongst the citizens about this new way of transaction, Modi said that this past Sunday as a Christmas gift, 15,000 people got rewards through a draw system, whereby each of the 15,000 winners will have Rs. 1,000 in their accounts.
He said, “Starting today (Sunday), this scheme will continue for the next 100 days. Everyday 15,000 people are going to receive rewards of Rs. 1,000 each. In the next 100 days, lakhs of families are going to receive crores of rupees as gift, but you will be entitled to this gift only if you make use of mobile banking, e-banking, RuPay card, UPI, USSD – such means and methods of digital payment.”
Also, it is said that, on April 14, on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Dr Baba Saheb Ambedkar, there will be a mega bumper draw where rewards will be in crores of rupees. It is important to know that, the government has designed this scheme with poor people in my mind. Therefore, only those will get its benefits who make a purchase worth more than Rs 50 but less than Rs. 3,000 via digital means.
Modi also added, “In rural areas too, people can buy or sell through AEPS and they can win rewards. Many will be surprised to know that now there are about 30 crore, i.e. 300 million RuPay cards in India, of which 200 million belong to poor families which have Jan Dhan accounts.”
These people immediately become the part of this scheme. Let us know your thoughts about this latest initiative by the government.
