A lot of new jobs were created under Modi rule.
The country has achieved rapid economic development under the rule of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. During his tenure, many sectors like startups, manufacturing, infrastructure and digitalization have expanded. Besides, the government programs Vocal for Local, Make in India and Self-reliant India have also worked for employment generation in the country. Due to this, more than 17 lakh people have got work in the formal sector in the country in September alone.
If you want to know the exact figures of how many people got jobs in the formal sector of the country, then just look at the number of new members or subscribers of the Employee Provident Fund Organization (EPFO). The figures for September 2023 have been released.
