Digital Infrastructure was Taking Everything From ‘Ration to Prashasan’: PM Modi
New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that digital infrastructure was taking everything from ‘Ration to Prashasan‘ (ration to administration) to the common Indian in a fast and transparent manner.
Speaking on the occasion, the Prime Minister said that the campaign for strengthening the health facilities, that have been going for the last seven years, is now entering a new phase.
“Today we are launching a mission that has the potential of bringing a revolutionary change in India’s health facilities,” Modi said.
The Prime Minister underlined that with 130 crore Aadhaar numbers, 118 crore mobile subscribers, about 80 crore Internet users and about 43 crore Jan Dhan bank accounts, there is no such big connected infrastructure anywhere in the world.
“This digital infrastructure is bringing everything from ration to administration (Ration to Prashasan) to the common Indian in a fast and transparent manner. The way technology is being deployed in governance reforms today is unprecedented,” the Prime Minister said.
“This facility is connecting thousands of countrymen living in far-flung parts of the country every day with doctors of big hospitals of cities while sitting at home,” he said.
The Prime Minister remarked that Ayushman Bharat-PMJAY has addressed a key headache in the lives of the poor and so far more than two crore countrymen have availed the facility of free treatment under this scheme, half of which are women.
The Prime Minister emphasized that diseases are one of the key reasons to push families into the vicious cycle of poverty and women of the families are the worst sufferers as they always relegate their health issues to the background.
