About Us

          Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi has said that "When the world is in crisis, we must strengthen our resolve". Our great resolve will help overcome this crisis. The state of the world today teaches us that a “Self-reliant India” is the only path. It is said in our scriptures– Aish: Pantha: that is – self-sufficient India. This is the vision envisaged by our Honourable Prime Minister; ‘Atma Nirbhar Bharat’ a vision for a Self-Reliant India, voicing ‘Vocal for Local’. It has also sensitized us about the need of being self-reliant. We need to move from ‘Made in India’ to ‘Made by India’. For India to become truly self-reliant, it is imperative to develop all the regions and states of the country simultaneously.

            Madhya Pradesh has, thus, set its foot forward to make itself self-reliant ‘AtmaN_MP@23’ endorsing A-Aspiration, T-Transformation, M-Mission, A-Action, N-Neeti for achieving self-reliant Madhya Pradesh by 2023, thereby contributing in the making of Atma Nirbhar Bharat.

           With a strong commitment of the Honorable Chief Minister and capacity of the people of the State, AtmaN_MP@23 is a roadmap towards achieving the same. In realizing the goal of Atma Nirbhar MP through this roadmap for action for the next three years, 4 central pillars have been identified by the Honourable Chief Minister which are: Physical Infrastructure, Governance, Health and Education, and Economy and Employment. Under the leadership of the Honorable Chief Minister along with NITI Aayog, intensive and wide-ranging consultations were held with subject matter experts, public representatives and educationists in the webinars organized on August 7th, 8th, 10th and 11th, 2020 on the identified subjects namely physical infrastructure, governance, health and education, and economy and employment respectively and subject-wise recommendations and suggestions were obtained. To ensure informed decision-making, suggestions were also invited from the people through the MyGov portal to incorporate the aspirations and expectations of the public for the Atma Nirbhar Madhya Pradesh roadmap.

            Senior officers of the state were designated as Team Leaders vested with the onerous task of organizing the webinars on each subject. The identified subjects were further sub-divided into sub-groups. Senior officers of the state government were made members of the core team for each sub-group.
