PM Modi’s second address to the nation since November 8, when he outlawed 500 and 1,000 rupee notes. A deadline for depositing the banned notes in bank accounts ended yesterday. A 50-day period that the Prime Minister had sought to ease the cash crunch that has followed the demonetization has also ended and the PM could detail the steps his government has taken towards that in his speech today.
Here are the top initiatives he announced:
For rural poor
• Home loans in villages up to Rs 2 lakh to get 3% interest exemption, available for building a new house or expanding an old one.
- In this fight against corruption and black money, it is clear that you wish to walk shoulder to shoulder with us
