Jan Dhan Yojana was launched by the Prime Minister of our country Narendra Modi on 15 August 2014 by the Central Government. With the Jan Dhan Yojana, crores of accounts were opened in the country, so that more and more people can be connected to the banking service and the assistance given by the government can be deposited directly into the bank of the customers. In this scheme, many Jan Dhan Yojana accounts were opened by the employees of the bank by setting up camps and villages. Due to this people were able to get banking facilities. This Jan Dhan account was linked with an Aadhar card. About 42.50 crore accounts have been opened through this scheme, which this scheme is also preferred by every Indian citizen. About 7 years have been completed for this scheme; the Prime Minister also mentioned this scheme and said that this scheme was successful to a great extent. Official Website- Jan Dhan Yojna
