“It gives me great pleasure to have seen the exceptional work done by you all in ensuring the success of the Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana. The target set for opening bank accounts for all households has been surpassed well ahead of the target date of 26 January, 2015. By opening 11.5 crore new accounts in a very short span, we have achieved a coverage of 99.74% of all households in the country. I congratulate you for your extraordinary efforts,” the Prime Minister wrote.

Laying out a roadmap for the future, the Prime Minister said, “The Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana provides a platform for changing the economic condition of our people. We need to build on this success and leverage these accounts to provide our citizens a wide range of credit, insurance and pension services. We also need to maintain high standards of customer service. This is the next phase of Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana.”

Modi also emphasised on financial literacy. “Bank Mitras need to be enabled to carry out RuPay card and Aadhaar enabled transactions in villages itself,” he said.
