Narendra Modi Govt: 9 Years of Transforming India- A Look at Achievements

NEW DELHI:  The BJP Government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi has completed Nine years of ‘Seva, Sushasan and Garib Kalyan’. Under the leadership of the Prime Minister, there has been a paradigm shift towards people-centric governance in these past 9 years. There have been numerous structural transformations, which cover every sector of our society and economy. These Nine years have seen India rising and cementing its position as one of the strongest and most resilient countries in the world. India is now steadily embarking on the path to becoming a super-power where its voice is heard and respected, where it is seen as an equal partner.

On May 30, 2023, the Bharatiya Janata Party government at the Centre will have served for nine years. Here are some of its most notable accomplishments.

PM UJJWALA YOJANA FUELS LPG REVOLUTION:  In the previous nine years, LPG consumption in India has increased significantly. In the past 9 years, there have been an additional nearly 17 crore LPG consumers. As of March 2023, there were 31.36 crore active residential LPG consumers in the nation, up from 14.52 crore in April 2014.
The Pradhan Mantri Ujjwala Yojana (PMUY), which increased LPG coverage from just 62 percent in 2016 to a staggering 104.1 percent in 2022, is responsible for this substantial growth.

INTEGRATED DEVELOPMENT AND THE RISE OF HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS: By supporting the construction of universities, IITs, IIMs, and other comparable institutions around the nation, the government has taken important steps to increase the gates to education for the youth. Between 2014 and 2023, the number of universities in the nation will have increased significantly, from 723 to 1113. Additionally, 5,298 new colleges have been constructed in the past nine years (from 38,498 in 2014 to 43,796 in 2023), improving student access to education across the nation.

Notably, 61.4 percent of colleges and 43 percent of universities are found in rural areas. Additionally, the Modi administration has made sure that students have improved chances thanks to the construction of 7 IITs and 7 IIMs over the past 9 years.

ROAD INFRASTRUCTURE IS BEING BOOSTED BY THE BHARATMALA: PARIYOJANA:  India has the second-largest road network in the world, with a total length of roughly 63.73 lakh km. The National Highways have made significant contributions to the economic and social growth of the nation by facilitating the efficient movement of people, commodities, and vehicles.

In the past nine years, the government of Prime Minister Modi has made a number of actions to expand the nation's National Highways infrastructure. Between 2014–15 and 2021–22, construction speed was steadily enhanced using a corridor-based National Highways development model. Construction grew from 12 km/day in 2014 to 29 km/day in 2021–2022.

TRANSFORMATIVE DECLINE IN MATERNAL MORTALITY RATIO: EMPOWERING WOMEN: Women's empowerment is a priority for the PM Modi-led administration. The Maternal Mortality Ratio has thus experienced a revolutionary reduction.

INCREASING ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE QUALITY MEDICINES:- The Modi government has taken a number of actions that have increased affordability for the poor in order to ensure that high-quality medications are accessible to all socioeconomic groups. An early start in this direction was the Ayushman Bharat Yojana.

INDIA'S ECONOMY IS BEING TRANSFORMED BY THE DIGITAL REVOLUTION:  The 'Digital India' initiative is the centrepiece of the PM Modi administration's emphasis on digitization. As a result, between 2014 and 2023, the volume of digital and UPI transactions will rise.

INDIA'S MEDICAL EDUCATION IS BEING REVOLUTIONISED: The PM Modi administration has placed a lot of emphasis on modernising medical education in the nation. As a result, the number of medical institutions in the nation has dramatically increased.

NORTH EAST INDIA'S STRUGGLE TO PUT AN END TO INSURGENCY: THE ROAD TO PEACE: -In the nine years that the Modi administration has been in power, the North East has made progress towards peace. Many insurgencies have been put an end to, and the insurgent organisations have been invited to the negotiating table, bringing to the establishment of peace in the area.

JAL JEEVAN MISSION : HAR GHAR JAL:- One of the top goals for the Modi administration was ensuring water supply. As a result, over the past nine years, there has been a tremendous growth in the number of homes having tap water connections. In rural locations, tap water hookups are often included.

INDIA HAS SEEN RECORD GROWTH IN THE NUMBER OF AIRPORTS: The number of airports has increased at an unprecedented rate under the Modi administration. From 2014 to 2023, the number increased dramatically, resulting in greater transport and commuting options for the populace as well as support for economic expansion.

THE CITY GAS DISTRIBUTION NETWORK: PROVIDING ENERGY TO HOMES:- Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Piped Natural Gas (PNG), and City Gas Distribution (CDG) all have significant functions. By lowering greenhouse gas emissions and pollutants, natural gas pipelines support sustainable development.

The CDG network had a reach availability of only 66 cities in 2014. This network covered 630 districts in 2023. Additionally, from barely 25.40 lakh connections in 2014 to 103.93 lakh connections in 2023, PNG connections have expanded.


75% of the tigers in the world are found in India. According to a report on the Status of Tigers in India that was recently published, the number of tigers has increased since 2014 by 42%, from 2226 to 3167.

India now has the most tigers and leopards in the world. From 2014 to 2018, the leopard population expanded by more than 60%. Asiatic lions can only be found in India, and recent years have seen an upsurge in their population.

THE WONDER OF INDIA'S WETLANDS INCREASE: One of Asia's largest networks of Ramsar Sites is found in India. Wetlands are essential ecosystems that improve freshwater availability, biodiversity, climate mitigation and adaptation, and general human well-being. India presently has 75 Wetlands of International Importance recognised as Ramsar sites, totaling 1.33 million ha, as part of committed efforts to preserve ecosystems.

While the list of Ramsar Sites increased by a total of 26 sites between 1982 and 2013. The nation's inventory of Ramsar Sites will grow by 49 additional wetlands between 2014 and 2023. According to the ministry, a total of 28 locations were designated as Ramsar Sites in 2022.

CREATING THE FOUNDATION FOR GROWTH AND CONNECTIVITY: The Eastern Dedicated Freight Corridor (EDFC), which runs 1337 kilometres from Ludhiana, Punjab, to Sonnagar, Bihar, and the Western Dedicated Freight Corridor (WDFC), which runs 1506 kilometres from Jawaharlal Nehru Port Terminal, Maharashtra, to Dadri, Uttar Pradesh, are both being built by the government of Prime Minister Modi.

As of March 22, 2023, 886 km (66.27%) of the work on the EDFC and 863 km (57.30%) of the work on the WDFC have been finished since the beginning in 2014. The amazing improvement can be seen in the 9.6-fold increase in costs from Rs 10,357 crores in 2013–14 to Rs 99,872 crores as of March 22, 2023 (including land for these projects).

ELECTRIFYING THE RAILWAYS: CREATING THE FOUNDATION FOR A SUSTAINABLE FUTURE: -A sustainable and effective form of transportation that is free of environmental pollution and fossil fuel dependence is provided by railway electrification. Only 21,413 route kilometres (RKMs) of railway lines were electrified between India's independence and 2014, according to the government.

In India, however, electrification has increased dramatically over the previous nine years, with a record-breaking 37,011 Route kilometres (RKM) of tracks being electrified in just those nine years. Ninety percent of the Indian railways, or 58,424 RKMs, have been electrified.

INDIAN CULTURAL AND SPIRITUAL HERITAGE RESTORATION:- The PM Modi administration is dedicated to bringing treasures and artefacts from all over the globe. Numerous magnificent items of art with profound cultural and religious significance have been stolen over the years and smuggled to other nations.

By April 24, 2023, India has received 251 precious artefacts of Indian provenance back from other nations, according to ministry data. 238 of them have returned home since 2014. Additionally, 72 objects from various nations are in the process of being repatriated.

FROM IDEA TO INNOVATION: CREATING THE INDIAN STARTUP ECOSYSTEM:- The PM Modi administration is accelerating the growth of startups. India now boasts the third-largest startup ecosystem in the world as a result. The quantity of startup units has grown by 225% since the launch of the Startup India programme.

According to ministry data, there were just 442 startups in the nation in 2016, but as of May 14, 2023, there would be 99,371. Every State and union territory in the nation currently has at least one startup working there. Additionally, there are around 100 unicorns working in India. Since the start of the programme, 8.93 lakh new jobs have been created in the nation as a result of this.

INCREASING URBAN MOBILITY: INDIA'S TRANSFORMATION OF METRO RAIL: -To address the issues of fast urbanisation and rising population, the Modi government has placed a strong emphasis on the development of the metro train system.

Only five Indian cities had a 229 km rail network prior to 2014. 20 cities' 860 km of metro rail will be in operation by April 2023. Prior to 2014, metro line startup distances were 0.68 km on average every month; this distance has since grown to 5.6 km per month.

BROADBAND CONNECTIONS INCREASE EXPONENTIALLY IN INDIA:- Under the Modi administration, broadband services have rapidly increased over the last nine years, which has had a favourable effect on the economy and society.

In 2014, there were 6.1 crore broadband connections in India, according to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting. Currently, the figure is 83.22 crore (as of December 31, 2022). Out of these, 79.98 crore are wireless connections and 3.23 crore are wired connections.

INDIA'S COMMITMENT TO FOOD SECURITY: MAKING FOOD AVAILABLE AND ACCESSIBLE FOR EVERYONE:-The Modi administration is dedicated to providing its citizens with access to food grains and enough nutrition. The National Food Security Act (NFSA) and other welfare programmes, such as the Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojana (PMGKAY), are funded by the federal government to ensure that no one goes to bed hungry.

According to the Ministry, food subsidies totaling Rs. 4.04 lakh crore have been given to DCP states during the past nine years, while Rs. 14.48 lakh crore have been given to FCI. Additionally, the Modi administration has decided to give 80 crore NFSA recipients free food grains from January 1 through December 31, 2023.

PMAY(U) YIELDS MORE THAN 800% GREATER NUMBER OF URBAN HOMES: With the commencement of the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban) in 2015, the lack of affordable housing for qualified urban households in the lower income group (LIG) and Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) categories is being addressed.

As per the Ministry, just 8.04 lakh homes were finished between 2004 and 2014. As of 2015, more than 74 lakh homes will have been built (by May 24, 2023). The amount of central support has increased significantly; it was only Rs 0.20 lakh from 2004 to 2014 and is currently Rs 2.01 lakh crores.
