New Delhi: PM Narendra Modi launched the Jan Samarth Site, a national portal for credit-linked government initiatives, on Monday.
On Monday, the Prime Minister attended the Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Corporate Affairs’ ‘Iconic Week Celebrations’ at Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi.

What is Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav?
The Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav plan rests on five pillars — freedom struggle, ideas at 75, achievements at 75, actions at 75, and resolve at 75 — and both finance and corporate affairs ministries have important roles to play for the vision envisaged by the Prime Minister.
Jan Samarth Portal
Jan Samarth Site, according to the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO), is a one-stop digital portal that connects government credit initiatives. It is a first-of-its-kind platform that connects beneficiaries with lenders directly.
The portal’s major goal is to promote equitable growth and development across multiple sectors by directing and providing them with the appropriate government benefits via simple and straightforward digital methods. The gateway ensures that all linked initiatives covered from beginning to end.
“It is a one-stop digital portal linking government credit schemes. It’s a first of its kind platform which directly connects beneficiaries to lenders,” the finance ministry said. Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman also heads the ministry of corporate affairs.
PM Modi unveiled a digital exhibition at the event

The Prime Minister also unveiled a new set of coins in the denominations of Rs 1, Rs 2, Rs 5, Rs 10, and Rs 20.
The subject of these special coins will be the AKAM logo, and they will be easily recognisable by visually impaired people.
The event held simultaneously in 75 sites across the country, with each place connected to the main venue by virtual mode.
In the run-up to India’s 100th anniversary, the government is focusing on certain goals, such as inclusive development and climate change, as thrust areas for the next 25 years. It happens at a time when the country’s economy is suffering significant challenges, including soaring inflation.
