 June 10 , UDHAMPUR Dr. Jitendra Singh, Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Science & Technology; MoS PMO, Personnel, Public Grievances, Pensions, Atomic Energy, and Space; and Chief Guest at the 2-day “Young Start-up Conclave” in Udhampur, Jammu and Kashmir, said today that the Start-up movement promoted by PM Narendra Modi is now reaching every part of India, including the B-Towns. Inaugurating the two-day “Young Start-up Conclave” in Udhampur, Dr. Jitendra Singh made this statement.

According to Dr. Jitendra Singh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made Jammu and Kashmir his top priority, allowing the state to catch up to the most developed Indian states and union territories in terms of infrastructure.


Dr. Jitendra Singh noted that 2023 is a landmark year for a number of reasons, including India’s assumption of the G20 presidency and the United Nations proclaiming 2023 the International Year of Millets thanks to the efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, both of which attest to India’s rising global profile under the current administration.

According to Dr. Jitendra Singh, the number of Indian startups has increased by a factor of 300 in the previous 9 years, from about 350 before 2014 to over 90,000 now, including more than 100 Unicorns.

Dr. Jitendra Singh went on to say that although India’s young people have plenty of potential, capacity, invention, and creativity, they lacked the supportive environment and political backing that have now been supplied by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Dr. Jitendra Singh remarked that the PM Modi-led government’s focus over the last nine years has been on fostering entrepreneurship as well as job creation.

Jobs are being created by the millions thanks to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “StartUp India, StandUp India” campaign, as young Indians are increasingly willing to forego the security of government service in favour of the risk and reward of entrepreneurship.

Dr. Zabeer Ahmad, director of the CSIR-Indian Institute of Information Technology in Jammu, called the first day of the two-day ‘Start-up Conclave’ a “historic day” for the district of Udhampur. Dr. Zabeer urged residents of Udhampur and the surrounding areas to attend the ‘Start-up Conclave’ so that they could learn more about the opportunities presented by startups, which he described as the “engines of economic growth.”

Director CSIR-IIIM Dr. Zabeer Ahmed, Deputy Commissioner Udhampur Sh. Sachin Kumar Vaishya, Deputy Inspector General Udhampur-Reasi Range Sh. Mohammad Suleman Choudhary, SSP Udhampur Dr. Vinod Kumar, and other officers of the district administration were present at the StartUp conclave.
