These projects have a combined value of over Rs 1,21,300 crore and are spread across ten states, including Chhattisgarh, Bihar, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Maharashtra, Telangana, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, and Haryana, as well as two union territories, Jammu and Kashmir, and Dadra and Nagar Haveli.

He emphasized the importance of resolving any outstanding issues and adhering to the stipulated timelines for the completion of these projects, considering their significance for the general public.

Additionally, Prime Minister Modi discussed the ‘PM SVANidhi Scheme’ and urged Chief Secretaries to identify and include all eligible street vendors, particularly in tier II and tier III cities. He also directed a mission-mode campaign to promote digital transactions among street vendors and ensure that the benefits of government schemes reach the family members of SVANidhi beneficiaries through the ‘SVANidhi se Samriddhi’ initiative.

Furthermore, the Prime Minister commended Chief Secretaries for successfully organizing G20 meetings and encouraged them to maximize the benefits derived from these meetings, especially in terms of promoting tourism and exports in their respective states. The PRAGATI meetings have reviewed a total of 340 projects worth Rs 17.05 lakh crore thus far, as stated in a note from the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
