In his address, the PM mentioned Production Linked Initiative (PLI) scheme as a great source of new employment opportunities.
“Under the PLI scheme only, it is expected to create 60 lakh new employment opportunities. Be it Make in India or Vocal for Local, all these schemes are creating new opportunities for employment and self-employment in the country. That means the opportunities for government and non-government jobs are increasing constantly,” PM Modi said.
