What Is PM’s Kamyab Jawan Program?

It helps the youth of today take their idea and put them entrepreneurship training so they can implement them for the betterment of society. If you have an idea, you go through rigorous training, get into an incubation program to make sure you are implementing it and graduate from it when your startup is on the way to see the light of the world.
