Several different PM schemes have been recognised as well as announced under the BJP rule of Narendra Modi in the past few years. Some of the known schemes include the demonetization scheme, ‘Make in India’ scheme as well as the ‘Swachh Bharat’ scheme. On the 1st of March 2017, PM Narendra Modi announced a new scheme that deals with the pleas of the marginal fishermen around the country. This is known as Pradhan Mantri Narendar Modi Yojna for Fishermen or PM Scheme for marginal fishermen.
The scheme announced was targeted for the poor fishermen who have trouble catching fish for sales which makes their livelihood. According to the scheme, the government will be providing a loan of up to 1 crores to marginal and small fishermen to buy new advanced boats so that they can go to lengthier distances from the coast to catch fish.

The message of Pradhan Mantri while announcing this PM Scheme for marginal fishermen
“We are bringing a scheme for poor fishermen, who cannot go deep into the sea due to the small boats they own and cannot catch enough fish,” announced PM Narendra Modi at a public meeting held at Diu on the 1st of March 2017.
Also, further helping the fishermen’s pleas he announced, “We have taken various steps to develop the coastal region of the country. We have started the Sagarmala project under which we will invest Rs 8 lakh crore.”
He also praised the union territory of Daman and Diu for holding up the ‘Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao’ scheme launched by the government a few years ago. Due to which the sex-ratio in the region is 1000 males to 1040 females which contradict to most of the other part of the nation where the male population vastly exceeds the female population. The appraisal was given on the ‘International Women’s day’ adding a well-deserved flavour to the efforts made by the public of Daman and Diu to uphold the scheme.
With such a great Indian Government Scheme, the hopes of poor fishermen have been strengthen as now they can employ high-tech tools to earn more. Thanks to the Government of Sh. Narendar Modi that thinks for everyone. #IndianGovernmentScheme
