Flagging other achievements of the central government, he said over six crore rural households are getting tap water under ‘Har Ghar Jal’ initiative.

He said despite the pandemic, country’s farmers produced 30 crore tonnes of food grains and 33 crore horticulture produce in 2020-21.

The President said more than 11 crore farmer families received Rs 1.8 lakh crore through PM-KISAN and big changes had been seen in the farm sector.
