While unveiling the Centre’s touted programme ‘Main Nahi Hum’ on Wednesday, Prime Minister batted for a “tax-plus one” system – wherein citizens give a little extra to the society, over and above taxes. Over 80 companies, including TCS, Google, Mindtree, Tech Mahindra, Infosys, Wipro, have already partnered the government for voluntary work related to social services.
What is ‘Main Nahi Hum’?
The self4society.mygov.in’ — named as ‘Main Nahi Hum’ – portal will act as a platform for companies to contribute their technology, skills and HR resources towards various social causes, including financial literacy, financial inclusion, small business enablement, and Swachh Bharat. Modi said volunteering efforts by the tech companies could bring about transformation in various sectors, including agriculture. He called on youngsters to venture out and work for the welfare of farmers.
