The Prime Minister said his government will invest a Rs. 100 lakh crore
on developing modern infrastructure that will help in nearly doubling the
size of the Indian economy to $5 trillion in the next five years. He said
reforms will continue to be ushered in to help India break into the top 50
countries on the 'ease of doing business' ranking. The amount will be
spent on building modern ports, highways, railways, airports, hospitals
and educational institutions, he said.
Amid concerns of a slowdown, the Prime Minister took stock of the
economy. The economy has been witnessing weak consumer confidence

measures to perk up the economy, including sector-specific sops, and a
rollback of the tax surcharge on foreign portfolio investors.
The Prime Minister has given a new push to digital transactions by
giving the motto of 'yes to digital payment, no to cash". While addressing
the nation from the Red Fort on Independence Day, he said, "We should
encourage digital payment. Today also when we go to villages, there are
boards at shops saying "Today Cash, Tomorrow Debt". I want to tell the
countrymen that now instead of this there should be a board reading,
'yes to digital payment, no to cash'."
