“On January 16, the government of India will unveil the full Action Plan of Start-up India, Stand-up India,” he said

“I had briefly touched upon ‘Start Up India, Stand Up India’ in my August 15 address from Red Fort. Start Up India, Stand Up India has brought a huge opportunity for the youth. On January 16, we are coming out with an action plan on start-ups,” he added.
