The government’s flagship programme PM Jan Dhan Yojana was started in 2014 after Narendra Modi’s government took office. The scheme has several benefits including the government’s target of opening accounts for all.
Many people are going to banks for opening the Jan Dhan account with zero balance because they hope that like last year, this time also the central government may credit Rs 500 in these accounts as a relief.
If you are not yet connected with the Jan Dhan account (Pradhan Mantri Jan Dhan Yojana) or you already have a normal savings account in the bank, then you can get it converted into Jan Dhan account. The process is very easy.
In order to apply for PMJDY, you just have to fill a form online. You must be an Indian citizen in order to open the account under this scheme. Minors above 10 years of age are also eligible to open a bank account under this scheme.
