Finance Minister said that the economic package  of 20 lakh crore rupees announced by the Prime Minister will enhance growth and build a very self -reliant India- Atmanirbhar Bharat. She said, Mr Modi in his address to the nation yesterday  had outlined his vision for a self reliant India and exhorted the  Indians to become vocal for our local products. The Finance Minister said, this vision was laid out after wide consultations with several sections of the society.

She said, the focus will be on the factors of production, labour, land, liquidity and law. She said, it will improve ease of doing business. Ms Sitharaman said, the intention is to build and take local brands to a global level. She said, Self-reliant India does not mean cutting off from rest of the world.
