New Delhi: Pushing for unicorns in self-help groups for women, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said India has moved from women development to women-led development in the last nine years.

Addressing the post-budget webinar on women empowerment, Modi highlighted that enrolment of women in the fields of engineering, science, technology and maths in the country today was 42 per cent.

“Can we make unicorns in self-help groups too, we have brought that vision in this year’s budget,” he said.

Unicorn companies are those that reach a valuation of USD 1 billion without being listed on the stock market.
