As promised in the 2019 election manifesto, the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government has hit the ground running to complete 75 milestone projects by June 2022, just a few months before the 75th anniversary of India's Independence.
The deadlines for this has been divided into three parts — 70 lakh homes by June 2020; 70 lakh homes by June 2021; and 60 lakh homes by June 2022. The design of these homes will be region-specific to make them socio-culturally acceptable while adopting disaster resilience technology.
In its various agenda and action plan, the government has unveiled the targets before the 75th Independence Day. The government also aims to increase female labour force participation to at least 30 percent; double farmer's income and give better access to credit at a reasonable cost for those presently excluded. Another agenda is ensuring secondary and tertiary care under Ayushman Bharat and increasing availability of paramedics and doctors and also reducing by 15 percent out-of-pocket expenditure in health through publicly financed health insurance and quality primary care. The 1000-day action plan is also focused on faster socio-economic development of deprived communities, proposals to balance regional development with thrust on economic activities in the northeast region.
