New Delhi: Government is planning to come out with a six-month 'report card' and Prime Minister Narendra Modi has directed all ministers to submit details of their performances and achievements by this month end.
The six-month report, being prepared by different ministries, is expected to showcase policy initiatives like 'Jan Dhan Yojana', 'Make in India Campaign' and 'Kisan Vikas Patra' among others.
According to sources, the ministries have been given the month-end deadline to submit details of their achievements in the form of an e-booklet and a video clip.
Though the government has not yet decided how it would like to showcase its six months achievements before the nation, the emphasis would be to mass-scale publicity at the grass-root level.
"It is not decided so far whether the government will hold press conferences or use social networking platform to talk about its achievements. But ministers and MPs have been told to distribute booklets in their respective constituencies to widely inform about the government's policy initiatives at the grass-root level," a source said.
The plan to highlight the achievements of the government assumes importance for BJP as several states are heading for assembly polls and bypolls.
Earlier, to mark 100 days in office, the Modi-led NDA government had held series of press conferences and other events to highlight the achievements in various social and economic sectors.
