Asserting that during the last 48 months India has witnessed an extraordinary transformation in almost all the spheres of human activity and progress, Union Health and Family Welfare Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda said developmental initiatives and relentless efforts of the National Democratic Alliance Government at the Centre led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has ensured that the benefits of development have reached the last mile in the remotest corner of the country.


The Union Health and Social Welfare Minister while addressing a press conference here on Monday to highlight the achievements and initiatives taken by the NDA government under PM Narendra Modi during the last four years said that the range of policy initiatives of the NDA government was not only impressive but also spectacular and historic in all fields. The initiatives taken by the government include local to global, rural and urban- touching all sections of society in holistic manner. The policy initiatives have encouraged active public participation of people with an aim of ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ through ‘Saaf Niyat for Sahi Vikas (clear intentions for proper development)’.


Nadda said, an emphatic increase in tax compliance have been registered in these 4 years where number of ITRs registered a jump of 80.5% from 3.79 cr in 2013-14 to 6.84 cr in 2017-18. Thus the economy is taking stride towards transparency from non-transparency. We are moving ahead towards transparent economy. He added that to achieve cashless society or cashless transaction, it takes time to get habituated, but if this is the way, it is the shortest way, he said.


Nadda said development is reaching the poorest ensuring better life for all with special focus has been given to the progress of the women, youth, farmers and all those sections of the society which required special attention. He said so much work has been done in last four years that it cannot be quantified in an half hour press conference, but he is trying to quantify the same by taking up the salient features.
