In the pursuit of the overall development and progress of the nation, both the Central and State Governments of India have been actively launching various welfare schemes. These schemes are designed to benefit different segments of the population, such as farmers, youth, workers, women, senior citizens, and children. The government provides financial assistance, medical facilities, social security, skill training, and pension benefits to eligible citizens through these Sarkari Yojanas (government schemes). The best part is that almost all the schemes offer an online application process, making it convenient for people to apply from the comfort of their homes.
Let’s take a look at some of the key Sarkari Yojanas that have been launched in 2023:
Every House Tricolor Campaign Registration
The Har Ghar Tiranga Abhiyan registration is an initiative by Prime Minister Narendra Modi to celebrate the 75th Independence Day, also known as Amrit Mahotsav. Citizens can participate in this campaign by registering themselves on harghartiranga.com. The campaign encourages Indians to hoist the national flag from August 13 to August 15 and share their tricolor selfies on social media. More than 6 crore selfies have already been uploaded on the official website.
Chief Minister Digital Seva Yojana 2023
Under the Mukhyamantri Digital Seva Yojana 2023 initiated by Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, one crore and thirty-three lakh Chiranjeevi families will receive free smartphones. This move aims to connect these families with digital services and enhance their access to information and opportunities.
e-Labor Card Registration
Introduced by the Central Government in 2021, the e-Labor Card registration targets workers in the unorganized sector, such as wage workers, street vendors, and domestic workers. The scheme aims to create a database of 38 crore unorganized sector workers, offering them employment based on their skills and providing access to various government schemes through a single e-labor card.

The assistance is transferred in three equal installments of ₹ 2000 each year, benefiting approximately 12 crore farmers nationwide.
PM Kisan KYC Online
For farmers to avail themselves of the benefits of the PM Kisan Samman Nidhi Yojana, the eKYC process has been made mandatory. Only those farmers who complete the e-KYC process by the deadline of August 31, 2023, will receive financial assistance.
Rail Skill Development Scheme 2023
Launched on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s 71st birthday, the Rail Skill Development Scheme aims to provide free industry-based skill training to around 50,000 youth and women. This training is designed to enhance their employability and help them secure better job opportunities.
Agneepath Plan 2023
The Ministry of Defense introduced the Agneepath Yojana to recruit 10th and 12th class pass youth (both male and female) into the Indian Army, Air Force, and Navy. Known as Agniveers, these youths will serve for four years, receiving a salary of ₹ 30,000 per month, insurance coverage of ₹ 44 lakhs, and other benefits.
NREGA Job Card New List 2023
The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act 2005 provides 100 days of employment to eligible rural families. The NREGA Job Card New List 2023 has recently been released to ensure more beneficiaries get assistance under the scheme.
Bihar Student Credit Card Scheme
The Bihar Student Credit Card Yojana was implemented on October 2, 2016, to provide interest-free loans of up to ₹ 4 lakh to financially disadvantaged students for higher education. This scheme encourages students to pursue higher studies by making funds available through a hassle-free process.
Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission 2023
The Ayushman Bharat Digital Mission, launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, aims to provide all citizens with a unique ID card containing their health-related information. This card facilitates easy access to healthcare services across India, as it contains details of a person’s medical history and previous treatments.
The Government of India’s relentless efforts to bring about positive change and upliftment in society have resulted in the implementation of various Sarkari Yojanas in 2023. These schemes play a crucial role in empowering different sections of the population, contributing to the nation’s overall progress. By adopting an online application process for most schemes, the government has further simplified the access to these benefits, making it convenient for citizens to apply from anywhere. As these schemes continue to make a difference in people’s lives, the future of India looks brighter than ever before.
