India has witnessed an impressive turnout of over 15 crore participants in just two months during the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra. This remarkable response highlights the Yatra’s impact in steering India towards a more inclusive and prosperous future. The initiative aims to ensure the 100% saturation of government schemes across the nation.

The surge in participation came after the campaign kicked off in states like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, and Telangana. Starting with 2.06 crore people reached by the end of Week 4 on December 13, 2023, the numbers quickly rose to 5 crores by the end of the 5th week on December 22, 2023. Over the next four weeks, an additional 10 crores joined the Yatra, crossing the significant milestone of 15 crores. As of January 17, the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra dashboard reported an impressive 15.34 crore participants, covering 2.21 lakh Gram Panchayats and 9,541 urban locations.

People’s Participation 

The Yatra, embodying the spirit of “Jan Bhagidari” (public participation), was launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It aims to reach every eligible individual with welfare schemes through Information, Education, and Communication (IEC) vans that travel across cities and villages. These vans equip communities with knowledge about government schemes, sustainable farming, and access to healthcare, sanitation, and financial independence.

Health Impact and Pledges

As of January 17, over 4 Crore people have been screened in health camps, with more than 38 Lakh registrations on My Bharat. The Yatra has issued over 2 crore Ayushman Bharat health cards to ensure accessible healthcare. With coverage of over two lakh Gram Panchayats, over 11 Crore people have taken a pledge towards building a developed India by 2047.

Tangible Achievements

The Yatra has left tangible impacts, with over 1 Lakh Gram Panchayats achieving 100% saturation for Ayushman Cards. Clean water through the ‘Har Ghar Jal’ scheme now reaches over 79,000 Gram Panchayats. Furthermore, 100% land records digitization in over 1.38 Lakh Gram Panchayats ensures transparency and security. Over 17,000 Gram Panchayats have achieved ODF Plus compliance, highlighting a commitment to clean living.
