Atmanirbhar Bharat is a policy devised by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to make India self-reliant. It is to ensure that Indian becomes a bigger and more prominent part of the global economy.
The Prime Minister spoke to the nation on this dream during the coronavirus-induced lockdown on May 12 earlier this year. He had also announced a financial package in this regard.
The intent of the package is to give a boost to those economies hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. It was also done to stimulate employment and give a fillip to the informal economy.
The Prime Minister also made it a point to give stress to local products and market them globally. He called it ‘Vocal for local’.
