Young India is in no mood to go slow in this fast-changing century and is charting out a new Action Plan to move ahead in the world of high-paced competition. This spirit of Young India is bringing about the much needed change in the society at every level.
The above view of Young India was highlighted by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his keynote address at India Action Plan 2020 Summit hosted by the TV Channel Times Now on February 12. He said that his government has embraced this spirit and “hit a century in decision making”. These changes have infused new energy at every level of society, he said.
Today the poor of the country are feeling confident that they can improve their standard of living, remove their poverty and farmers are confident of increasing their income in farming, the prime minister said, mentioning the Action Plan, in a release.
The Young India major Action Plan:
5 Trillion Dollar Economy – Focus on Small Cities and Towns:
“India aims to expand its economy to 5 trillion dollars in the next five years. “It is better to set a target and strive towards it. This goal is not easy but not impossible to achieve,” Modi said.
Modi said that to achieve this goal, the manufacturing sector should be strengthened along with the increase in the country’s exports.He emphasized that for the first time, a government has focused on the economic growth of small cities as well making them new growth hubs.
Improving the Tax System:
“Every government has been very hesitant to improve the tax system. There was no change in this for years. Now we are moving from a Process Centric Tax System to a Citizen Centric Tax System. India will join the select countries, where the taxpayers charter is implemented. The charter will clearly define the rights of taxpayers,” the prime minister said. He urged all citizens to be responsible citizens and pay their taxes.
Media to play a constructive role in building a prosperous India:
“When everyone fulfils their duties then there would be no problem left to be solved. Then the country would get a new strength, new energy. This would take India to new heights in this decade,” Modi said, urging the media to play a constructive role in building a prosperous India.Action Plan, India Action Plan 2020 Summit, Young India
