What are the key priorities of NDA 3.0?

The Narendra Modi government is back for a third term, and with the Parliament session and budget around the corner, the government has hit the ground running.

Extending the PM Awas Yojana to three crore additional homes and releasing the 17th instalment for PM Kisan Samman Nidhi were the first decisions of NDA 3.0.

While the government will continue working for farmers, youth, women, and the poor, here are five major priority areas.

KEY SEGMENTS OF THE POPULATION

The Narendra Modi led NDA is likely to focus on 10 major segments of the population in the third term.

This includes the poor, women, youth, farmers, senior citizens, farmers, fishermen, workers, MSME’s, small traders and artisans.

Sources tell CNBC-TV18 that the BJP manifesto had promised to support these segments of the society and the government is likely to announce measures to extend more support to them over the next five years.

JOBS AND HOUSING FOR MIDDLE CLASS

Creating skilled jobs and access to affordable housing for the middle class is going to be a major priority during NDA 3.0.

Sources say apart from announcing three crore additional homes under PM Awas Yojana, the government would like to make it easy for the middle class to acquire and build homes and generally make them more liveable.

The government would like to create more formal and skilled jobs for the middle class.

Currently, 1.5 crore formal jobs are being created every year.

Sources say the government has created the right environment for job creation with incentives for investments and manufacturing and the growth in formal jobs will be much faster here on.

RAILWAYS

Ending wait lists in the railways is a priority for the government.

Sources say the government’s plan of launching 3,000 more trains is on track and by 2030-31, the problem of demand and supply for travellers will cease to exist.

REGULATORY FRAMEWORK FOR DIGITAL ECONOMY

Sources say the government is working on an overarching regulatory framework appropriate for a digital economy.

CNBC-TV18 has learnt that drafting of rules to implement the Digital Personal Data Protection Bill is in advanced stages and consultations with industry should begin soon.

Similarly, the government is also considering bringing the Digital India Bill before parliament.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE, COMBATING FAKE NEWS AND DEEP FAKES

The NDA government has been holding consultations with stakeholders on Artificial Intelligence (AI) for the past several months.

Sources say the effort would be to complete consultations soon and bring out the regulations.

Sources added that the government is seriously concerned about misinformation, fake news and deepfakes and would like to hold detailed consultations with the opposition on how to address these issues.

Any future regulations regarding deepfakes and misinformation could come under the Digital India Bill.
