Congress President Rahul Gandhi announced on 25th March 2019, that his party aims to provide the minimum income and eradicate poverty from India. In a press conference, Rahul Gandhi announced Nyuntam Aay Yojana (Minimum Income Scheme). The term used, "NYAY" is an acronym means “justice” in Hindi. “We can’t have two Hindustans, of the poor and the rich.”, he said.

The scheme targets 20-25% of India's poor population. The average income that this population gets is Rs 6,000 per month. To reach the minimum income bar of Rs 12,000 per month, the Congress government would give Rs 6,000 to the family.
Further, if the family under this scheme gets Rs 7,000 per month, the Congress government would hand out Rs 5,000 to make it Rs 12,000 per month. According to the scheme, 20 % of the population is promised to the credit of around Rs 72,000 a year.

The total population of over 5 crore poor households is targeted under this scheme. The claim will be directly credited to the claimant's bank account.

However, Rahul Gandhi refused to give any immediate answers on the execution of the scheme and neither other Congress leaders give their comment.
