Prime Minister Narendra Modi today underscored the need to achieve Ease of Doing Business so the country can “grab global opportunities”. “For India’s citizens, we must try and better Ease of Living. It will help us achieve the aspirations of Indians and make their lives better,” he said at a meeting of government’s think tank Niti Aayog.
“The positive response received for this year’s Budget has expressed the mood of the nation. The country has made up its mind that it wants to progress rapidly and doesn’t want to lose time. The youth is playing a major role in setting the mood of the nation,” PM Modi said.
