PM Modi launches PM-SURAJ portal to empower marginalized communities by extending credit support

Prime Minister Narendra Modi inaugurated the ‘Pradhan Mantri Samajik Utthan and Rozgar Adharit Jankalyan’ (PM-SURAJ) national portal during an event organized Wednesday by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment.

The launch ceremony, graced by PM Modi as the Chief Guest, emphasized the government’s commitment to extending credit support to one lakh entrepreneurs from disadvantaged communities. The PM-SURAJ portal symbolizes the ministry’s dedication to placing the underprivileged at the forefront of development initiatives.

During the event, PM Modi personally interacted with beneficiaries from various states who have availed themselves of schemes like NAMASTE, VCF-SC, VCF-BC, and ASIIM. These schemes cater to individuals from Scheduled Castes, backward classes, and Safai Mitras, providing them with essential support for economic upliftment.

Additionally, the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment distributed Ayushman health cards and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) kits to sewer and septic tank workers (Safai Mitras) under the National Action for Mechanized Sanitation Ecosystem (NAMASTE) program.

The Ayushman health card, issued under the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (AB-PMJAY), grants beneficiaries access to cashless healthcare services at empanelled hospitals. Meanwhile, PPE kits are crucial for ensuring the safety of frontline workers, providing them with necessary protection against health hazards and infections.

The event underscored the government’s commitment to “Vanchiton Ko Variyata,” ensuring equitable support for historically underserved communities. This dedication reflects the broader vision of “Viksit Bharat,” wherein every individual has the opportunity to contribute to and benefit from India’s development journey.

With over three lakh individuals attending offline and an additional three lakh viewers tuning in online, the event witnessed overwhelming engagement. This collective determination highlights the shared goal of fostering inclusivity and prosperity for all segments of society.
