The central government had launched this new scheme in 2017, on the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the Quit India Movement. A five-year scheme from 2017 to 2022, the New India Movement Program envisaged many programmes and schemes across the nation for the betterment of the citizens of India.

Among its areas of focus were:

  • Raising discrimination, caste, religion, poverty, education, hygiene and many more issues to eradicate all sorts of problems from the country.
  • Clean India, Literate India, Poverty-free, Corruption-free, Terrorism-free, Communalism-free and Caste-discrimination free India.

In August 2021, Union Commerce Minister Piyush Goyal said that “‘[email protected]’ is a declaration for a new India with new dreams, new energy and new commitment. India wants to mark 75th Independence Day as a watershed moment in its history. At 75, we must look ahead with a clear vision, blueprint and resolve for the next 25 years.”

Given that there will be a mandate in 2024 and more till 2047, will PM Modi’s vision of a new India survive the political upheavals?
