Furthermore, PM Modi will transfer funds amounting to ₹55.9 crore for 559 villages under the Pradhan Mantri Adarsh Gram Yojana, supporting various construction activities including Anganwadi Bhawans, health centers, and additional rooms in schools. The prime minister will also inaugurate the 'CM Rise School' in Jhabua, equipped with modern facilities like smart classes and e-Libraries.
