Modi parsing the youngsters for their contribution towards the farmers said, "Youngsters are talking about the idea of a Smart Anna Bhandar- which will help farmers."

"There was a time when startups meant only digital and tech innovation. Things are changing now. We are seeing startup entrepreneurs in different fields," he said.

Modi said startups were no longer confined to big cities only."Smaller towns and villages are emerging as vibrant startup centres," he added.

He also said that India has distinguished itself in the global startup ecosystem.
