Prime Minister Narendra Modi has started serving the public as soon as he returned from the consecration ceremony of the Ram temple in Ayodhya. On Monday, he made a big announcement that is expected to bring relief to the common man on electricity bills. PM Modi has announced a new scheme called Pradhan Mantri Suryoday Yojana. For this, the government has set a target of installing solar on the roofs of more than one crore houses. It aims to save money spent on electricity by the poor and middle class. PM gave information about this scheme by posting on social media platform ‘X’.
PM gave information about this scheme
Posting on Instagram, the Prime Minister wrote, ‘All the devotees of the world always get energy from the light of Suryavanshi Lord Shri Ram. Today, on the auspicious occasion of Abhishek in Ayodhya, my resolve was strengthened that Indians should have their own solar roof top system in their homes.
The PM further wrote, ‘After returning from Ayodhya, I have taken the first decision that our government will launch ‘Pradhan Mantri Suryodaya Yojana’ with the target of installing rooftop solar on 1 crore households. This will not only reduce the electricity bills of the poor and middle class, but also make India self-sufficient in energy.
Who will benefit from Pradhan Mantri Suryoday Yojana?
The Pradhan Mantri Suryoday Yojana is expected to benefit the poor and middle class the most. At present this class has to spend a large portion of its earnings in the form of electricity bills. Politics has also taken place on the issue of electricity in the country.
Sometimes on the issue of bill waiver and sometimes on the issue of free electricity, there have been attempts to indulge people. Politicians on such issues can be punished through this scheme. While announcing the Pradhan Mantri Suryoday Yojana, PM Modi talked about installing rooftop solar on one crore houses. However, the government may soon announce a roadmap on where these will be installed first.
